What is Vive Peru? Why do I have to pay to volunteer?

Vive Peru is a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status dedicated to fostering understanding of Latin American and Peruvian culture and providing much-needed aid to Peruvian communities. Vive Peru works to promote cultural understanding and implement innovative and self-sustainable programs in the areas of health, education, music, social work and engineering. Through these volunteer internships, students gain international and professional experience, and the organization is able to support development in the region. In the past 2 years, 207 university students from across the country have joined us to donate 19,020 volunteer hours and over $23,900 in donated materials and outreach programs to communities in need in Peru. At local medical campaigns on the coast and in the Andes, volunteers were able to attend to 1733 patients with medical consultations and medications.
