Volunteering in Peru

Please note: Currently it is not possible working as a volunteer in our project

Do you enjoy spending your time with kids? Would you like to discover Peru off the beaten path?


Join us and volunteer in our orphanage in Cusco!

Help us with your personal skills and talents, support the children in doing their homework, play with them or organize common activities.

While volunteering in Peru there is enough time to discover the beauty of Cusco and Peru and attend spanish classes.

As a non-profit organization we support you with planning and organizing your stay and offer a free pick-up service from the airport. In contrast to many other companies we do not charge any commission fees.

Why don't you charge commission fees for volunteering at the orphanage in Peru? When and how do I pay?

Two Austrians, who already have worked at Elim several times, are running “Fairien” voluntarily. Therefore it is possible for us, unlike many other companies, not to charge commission fees. You have to pay only 10 Dollars per day for accommodation . The payment will be effected in Cusco directly to the manager of the orphanage. The money is used to cover the daily expenses for the kids, like food, school and salaries.


Can I really choose on my own how much time I want to spend at the orphanage?

In both houses, there are working a cook and a tutor the whole day, who even sleeps there at night. Therefore, volunteers aren't obliged to stay at the house at any specific time, but can freely choose when to play with the children, help with the homework or organize excursions.


Are basic Spanish skills enough?

A voluntary stay at the orphanage doesn't require Spanish skills, but of course they would be helpful.

Especially the girls speak a little bit of English. However, it is quite easy to play with the kids without speaking a lot.


How does the booking work?

Fill out the form under the menu icon “registration”. We will contact the manager of the orphanage to check the availability. As soon as we get the positive answer (normally the next day), we will send you a confirmation and your adventure is ready to start!
