Spend some of your time at this special home for children (and some adults) with physical and mental disabilities. This program is perfect for those looking to work with children that require a higher level of care and assistance. You will be helping to take care of roughly 30 children, as well as assisting the program staff with their daily tasks. Activities you can look forward to being a part of include therapy sessions, educational lessons, dancing lessons and outdoor activity. You might also find yourself helping to make classroom materials, painting, cutting firewood, and organising the facility. The main goal of the organisation is to maximise what these children can do on their own, with the hope that one day they are able to get jobs and live fulfilling lives!
About the Accommodation You will be staying in our accommodation center in Banos del Inca, Rural Cajamarca countryside. The house is made with traditional materials such as adobe and stone, it also has large gardens and its own chicken coop off to the side. WiFi will be available in your rooms, but keep in mind that it may not be stable at times. We recommend also using 3G data if staying connected is important to you. All participants are expected to be environmentally aware and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity. Although rooms will be cleaned daily by staff, you will be expected to clean up after yourself, and to play your part to keep the accommodation neat and organized. Food Arrangements The food will be typically Peruvian meaning lots of corn, beans, rice, chili peppers, potatoes, wheat, and other grain, all very vegetarian friendly. Keep in mind that some local dishes may be spicy!
You will be staying in the Los Baños del Inca district found in the east of Cajamarca. It is known for being centered on a naturally occurring thermal spring! Located only a short distance away from Cajamarca city (Capital and largest city of Peru’s Cajamarca Region, enriched in culture and history), this quiet location provides a relaxing atmosphere after a day out. The accommodation has beautiful view of the Andes Mountain Range and is close to the Amazon Rainforest, it will bring you back to South American nature!
