Cusco is known the world over as the enchanting heart of the Inca civilization, and is the gateway to one of the great wonders of the world: Machu Picchu. With its narrow, cobblestone streets, Colonial architecture atop Incan stonework, and locals in vibrant and traditional dress, you will forget you are living in the 21st century.

Work Project

You will be staying and working in a home for impoverished children from rural households. While some of the children have families, most are too poor to care for them. Without this home or "alburgue," they would have no educational opportunities. There is no limit to the needs at this facility. Projects may include improvements and maintenance to the facility such as painting classrooms, creating a garden, or constructing desks and beds. The children attend public school in Cusco during the day, but you will have ample opportunities to work directly with them after classes and on the weekends. You may also visit a local family to construct a Lorena stove. Your hosts will chose your volunteer projects prior to your trip based on the immediate needs of the children's home.


Globe Aware seeks to promote international volunteering, cultural awareness and sustainability. The organization, together with the local community hosts, develop effective local solutions to global problems in non-religious, non-political, multi-international environments. The aim is to expand and foster peace and understanding between Americans and the rest of the world, and to help others stand on their own.

Have you ever been to Machu Picchu? Well, I have. And if you went there, you would know how powerful a feeling you get when standing at the top looking over at the rest of the ruins. I didn't feel like a confused tourist, either, that goes there strictly for the purpose of seeing that wonder. I was ... more »
When I went to Costa Rica with Globe Aware this summer I had the most enlightening experience. I went to the Orosi Valley there, and had the best volunteer vacation of my life. Now, this place wasn't where most would spend a typical vacation. The Orosi Valley opened my eyes to people that actually ... more »
