I want to do a volunteer week in Peru & was looking at the Global Volunteer Network programs. Anyone tried one of these or similar programs?
I went through IVHQ who use the same organisation in Peru as GVN, called Maximo Nivel, you could probably contact them directly, they were wonderful. You will probably wish you went for more than a week! about 8 years ago
Cusco can rain anytime, always have a lightweight rain jacket with you. about 8 years ago
I went to Cusco as a young woman to do volunteer work, found it very safe and tourist-friendly as long as you use nromal street smarts, eg. keep an eye on your bag, especially at festivals, markets or other busy places, use registered taxis at night, keep with a group at night, watch your drinks, etc. about 8 years ago
