Voluntourism is an increasingly popular option in Peru, but finding a longer-term internship opportunity (especially without paying an arm and a leg) can be a little more difficult. Here are six organizations that need qualified and dedicated interns NOW.
1. SKIP – Supporting Kids in Peru – El Porvenir
SKIP is a UK charity operating near Trujillo, in the northern coastal region of Peru. While their primary emphasis is on supporting and consolidating the education of economically disadvantaged children, they believe education programs can have little effect without focusing on the family as a whole. As such, they provide a range of programs aimed at helping parents to establish a safe, happy and financially sound home environment, as well.
