Help children and families overcome severe poverty

Inspire and guide youth to productive futures as a volunteer in Peru. Working in partnership with inspired community leaders since 2001, we enable you to help eradicate hunger, improve healthcare and enhance cognition on our Reaching Children’s Potential Program.  Work with inspired teachers and managers at a safe harbor for babies and youth, and support families with essential services in the barrios of Ventanilla, a dusty mountainside community outside Lima.

“This is my third program in Peru. It is absolutely unfathomable the depth of poverty in the partner community! But, I am positive my experience advanced understanding between cultures. They wanted to learn Conversational English, and I was able to give that to them.”

“Miracles do happen each day, and Global Volunteers has an appreciable percentage of them!”
