Affordable Volunteer Program in Peru

Project Description: 

International Volunteer HQ’s partner organization in Peru requires volunteers NOW! IVHQ has a wide range of volunteering opportunities available in teaching, orphanage work and medical work in the Peruvian capital city of Lima.

IVHQ has volunteer programs in Lima. Lima is the capital of Peru, located on the coast approximately half way down the country.


Placements begin on the 1st and 15th of each month. Volunteers can choose to volunteer for periods of one week to six months.


Volunteers are accommodated in a home-stay where they will live with a local family. We give that family money from your fee for support, food and board. It is exciting to stay with a family; that way you will learn the Peruvian way of life, meet local people, eat local food, speak the local language (Spanish) and engage in local customs and traditions. Living is comfortable and all home stays have electricity and running water. Volunteers can expect to share a room with one or two other volunteers but in some home stays volunteers get their own rooms. 


Program fees are very affordable from USD180 for one week to USD2220 for 24 weeks.

This Cost Covers...: 

The program fee covers airport pick up, orientation, t-shirt, program supervision, accommodation and meals during volunteer placement period, In-country 24/7 volunteer support and In-country administration costs.

Best Suited For...: 

Any dedicated volunteers over the age of 18. IVHQ also accepts groups and families.
