The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the local community in Peru where you will serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects. When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation.
Do you have a big heart? Can you provide care and support for some of Peru's most vulnerable children? The Global Volunteer Network has opportunities for volunteers to work at a clinic for mentally and physically disabled children. In a developing country like Peru, where poverty means that the most disadvantaged often receive less than anyone else, there is a need for volunteers to provide care and kindness to the youngest sufferers of mental and physical disabilities.
