Blog and Content Manager

Volunteer to research and explore Peru from your Lima home base. Blog and write about your experiences and provide information for future travelers.

Your goal while volunteering in Peru for Karikuy is to gather as much information about the Peruvian culture in order to present fresh content for Perupedia, our Blog and Volunteer Planet website. As a volunteer it will be your job to update these mediums with subjects that peak your interest whether food, dance, art, music, travel, sports, politics or history, you will have the flexibility to explore topics that engage you.. This volunteer program can truly be a young writers dream and a perfect opportunity for bloggers and social activists to polish their skills. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to work on our organizations Humanitarian programs such as our Kawsay and Karikuy-Haugen Fund. In 2015 we will be also running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for adding another floor to the Karikuy House. This campaign will be run by the volunteers for future generations of volunteers and help expand the program.

We also run Volunteer Planet, a website that promotes volunteering worldwide and will be expanding on this project as we get volunteers who have the experience of working on websites and social media.
