Peru Volunteer and Travel has designed an Internship placement to aid the population of Pisac in Cusco's Sacred Valley with agricultural activities iin order to improve their quality of life. In this project, townspeople and interns will work together and learn from each other in the shared goal of community and economic development.
Intenr will work with the local farmers in activities such as preparing the soil, planting seeds and tending to plantations of potatoes, corn, and onion.
Interns will also be able to assist with livestock rearing, including cows and sheep. Feeding, cleaning and tending to any baby animals may be amongst these duties.
Interns will also be able to participate in the cultural traditions surrounding agriculture, including preparation rituals and tributes to mother earth.
Project placement includes:
- Housing and meals in either Cusco or Pisac
- 24/7 support before and during placement
- Airport pickup and transfer to project
