  • “It was an incredible experience with a great spirit and atmosphere. Great place to meet new people. Anybody who likes wildlife, learning about the local environment or has any interest in biology would love it there.”

  • “The 5 months I spent in Peru were by far the best of my life....I now look back and see how far I’ve come, the independence and tolerances you learn are all skills to be appreciated… I chose to spend more time with my host family and through doing so I had a fully immersed experience and one which I will treasure.”

  • Conservation & Environment
  • “Relaxing at the end of my first day and feeling like I’d already been there for weeks, meeting an amazing bunch of like-minded people who I’ll be staying in touch with; waking up in the rainforest every day and seeing something completely different; realising how much I didn’t want to go when I started packing yesterday.”

    Rachel Fearnley
  • “I was a volunteer at the Teacher Training Program in Cusco. The more thought I've given to my travels abroad, the more I've realized the two projects I worked at in Peru, both the Teacher Training and Inca Archaeology projects, were two of the most well-run projects which afforded me the greatest opportunities for impactful service and personal growth. Looking back on my experience in the classroom as well as the experiences of the other volunteers I was working with, I heard nothing but optimism and positivity. Each volunteer felt that they were truly making an impact in the lives of their teachers and likewise felt the experience and skills they were gaining to be invaluable. 

    Today, I had the privilege of hearing former President Toledo speak at my university. He addressed the dire need for improved quality of education in Peru and stressed that this will only be achieved through increased and improved teacher training. Tim DeWinter, the Projects Abroad Peru Director, has established and runs a phenomenal teacher training program which does exactly this. It impacts the lives of countless students (not to mention volunteers) who may just go on to change the trajectory of Peru.”
