SERVICE TRIP DESTINATION
Travel to Peru with ICN where you can witness 9-foot wide Condors soaring over some of the deepest canyons in the world, visit Machu Picchu, one of the wonders of the world, walk on the unique straw islands of Puno and take a step back in time to visit Peru’s oldest culture in the Colca Canyon. Because of ICN’s connections and relationships, you will have to opportunity to work with Peru’s officials and schools throughout the country to better the lives of children through sponsorship. Help us establish after school centers in the many remote village of the Andes Mountains, and help us with our sponsorship work, recording information and taking pictures of the children in our program. Spend time with countless children in Peru, and encourage them to work hard, follow their dreams and overcome any obstacles they may face. Work with Peru's Matsiko World Orphan Choir and visit with children from the past US tours. Meet your sponsored child face to face and meet his or her family. Take them shopping and enjoy a meal with your sponsored child in his/her home country.
We encourage you to tailor your experience by volunteering your unique abilities to make the most impact on your trip. Please let us know if you have any specific skills (medical, building, teaching, well-drilling, etc.) that you want to volunteer, and we will make sure to utilize them when we arrive. A trip to Peru will give you a chance to understand the challenges and real opportunities of our world’s least fortunate children, to play with them, help them and live among them! You will witness firsthand the impact sponsorship has on children, families and communities in this area.
