Peru boasts diverse environments of vast Amazonian lowlands, the Andes mountains and a narrow strip of coastal plain, the largest indigenous population of all the South American countries and a fascinating cultural heritage.

Project work may include helping villages to construct or renovate community buildings or working in an orphanage or a local village school.
