Free Voluntary Work Programs in Peru

Dear Travellers , we are a small group part of Peru Incas Explorer -PIE a small tour operator in Peru . We believe that the local communities can learn many things with the help of visitors, and our hands are not long enough.
Our main objective is be the connection between the travellers who want to help and the poor communities who need help. Almost all of our volunteer programs in Peru are free.

Sectors of Work with PIE
Education
Our work to date has involved some schools and benefited more than 200 children, with important repercussions for improved education, and contributions to preserving the traditions and activities of the indigenous communities. If you have education about sustainable tourism we have our arms open to learn from you.
Teaching English .- Our kids need to be taught English if the country is to fulfil its potential for development. Peru offers a great potential in tourism thanks to our wonderful landscape.
To Learn the English language can bring about new opportunities in tourism, higher education, and foreign trade.
Where can you teach? We have many places to teach from the jungle in Iquito’s to the highland in Puno at the Lake Titicaca.





Iquitos - Community San Martin de Tipisha
Our volunteers will live at the paradise in a wonderful community located at the deep jungle in " Pacaya Samiria National Reserve".

Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve is located in Peru's Amazon region, 100 miles west from Iquitos. The Reserve is a triangular shaped area between the Marañon and Ucayali rivers. These rivers intersect at the northeastern of the Reserve, marking the beginning of what is considered the Amazon River proper. The reserve’s waters are home to gray and pink dolphins, Amazonian manatees, giant river otters, black caimans and giant South American river turtles. Land species include jaguars, capuchin monkeys and spider monkeys.
More than 300 species of birds live in Pacaya-Samiria, including five of the eight species of macaw found in Peru. The prehistoric-looking hoatzin bird is seen here as well.

Wildlife and local villagers rely heavily on two species of palm for food. The fruit of the moriche palm is critical to the diets of parrots and mammals such as the tapir. Humans use the fruit in drinks and ice cream. Birds and mammals feed on the fruit of the chonta palm, while humans harvest the palm’s heart.
