Fairien is a non profit organisation that procures volunteers to a christian orphanage, located in Cusco, Peru. The orphanage serves as a home for former street children who are given the opportunity of attending school, having a new home and a new, huge family. During the week the children are going to public school, which is in walking distance. The younger ones go in the morning and the elder ones at the afternoon. Therefore, there is every time someone of the children in the house. The ones, who are currently not in school, are doing their homework, helping to do the housework or just playing. The volunteers have the opportunity to bring in their own skills. Some suggestions: learning English, playing boardgames, cards, doing sports, doing handicrafts, painting etc. Furthermore, you can plan activities like excursions, going to the cinema, renting a footballfield, going to eat, swimming etc. To volunteer at the orphanage Elim Cusco you do not require special skills. If you are interested in volunteering at our project. Especially there is no minimum stay and no minimum or maximum age. Just send us an e-mail and the journey can begin!
