The Children of the Sun can
facilitate contact with the various projects we are working with in Cusco.
Read more under Projects.
If you wish to travel to Cusco to work with
children and / or young people, you can do that as a volunteer.
It is obligatory in Peru for the volunteer to give a donation to the
institution where he or she will be working to
show respect for the work done there.
As a volunteer it is very
important to have prepared before you go what you will do together with kids,
so you have something to offer, such as games, handicrafts, recycling, etc
January and February are not a good time for volunteering. There are
only few children in the drop-in-centers those months.
It is important to have a reasonable knowledge of Spanish before you
go. There are good language schools in Cusco, but if you come as a complete
beginner in Spanish, you cannot expect to be able to communicate well with
the children and young people over there.
And remember that in Peru everything in totally different from what you find
in Denmark or in Europe!
But call or mail to The Children of the Sun, Jannie
Fursund, she will be happy to tell you what you
specifically need to be aware of.

Often the joy of anticipation prevents one from being able to listen to good
advice. That can cause you to experience a culture shock when you come to
Peru for the first time.
