Volunteering in Lima

by admin on April 12, 2011

An organization called Un Techo Para Mi Pais, dedicated to helping those suffering from extreme poverty in Latin America, is holding sign-ups for a 4 day trip to the outskirts of Lima where they will build 78 houses. The cost for the 4 days (of course, excluding transportation to Lima) is 40 soles, and includes meals and accommodations. This is a great way for young people to volunteer their time and help in areas where many people cannot afford homes. Volunteer travel is becoming more and more common, and those who have participated in these programs have many positive things to say about them. If you’re looking to do some good while you travel to one of the most interesting places in the world, research how you might be able to volunteer during your visit.
