Fulfilling experience

The Globe Aware program in Cuzco, Peru was one of the most fulfilling, giving, and inspiring trips that I have taken, and I've visited 28 countries. During the week we became so close to our host Rosio, her family, and the kids at the Albergue, we felt like we were leaving our family, so it was hard to say goodbye.
If you're looking to immerse yourself in the culture, to learn about the people and the history of the land, this program gives you a chance to do that. Your volunteer week will start with two days of exploring Cuzco and its surroundings while guided by your incredibly knowledgable host. The work week is thoroughly thought out and you know exactly what you're doing every hour, down to your rest time (because you'll need it in the high altitude). The food... we cannot say enough about how authentic, fresh, and delicious the food was! Every day it was something different; from quinoa battered chicken fingers to stuffed peppers, and daily served with savory soup. Mid week you will get a chance to visit Machu Picchu, reason why everyone comes to Peru! We were able to also squeeze in an additional hike to Rainbow Mountain after our last day with the program so if you have an extra day or two, it's worth the trip!

If you're a first time traveler, a family, or a seasoned traveler, you will feel safe, taken care of, and inspired by what this program offers.

I've traveled with Globe Aware to Ghana and Peru and feel they will do everything in their power to ensure you're ready, safe, and well taken care of.

Care for Cuzco

Caring for Cuzco was a great volunteer and travel experience. We were able to stay in the children's home we worked in which was a great opportunity to spend time with the children. We rebuild the outdoor kitchen and also did medical and dental clinics. We were able to truly see the difference we made for the children and mountain communities we traveled to do clinics in. I highly recommend it. It's a totally different lifestyle - I felt completely safe with wonderful hospitality.
