Amantani help bridge the gap between home and school for children living in Ccorca, a handful of Quechua communities nestled high in the Andes of southern Peru.
These children endure a four hour walk between home and school, and when at school are often taught a curriculum which is irrelevant to the world in which they live in, and often in a language they don’t understand.
Amantani provide boarding houses and a relevant education, which means that the children don’t lose touch with their communities, their families and ultimately themselves.
Andean Trails recently supported Amantani in the Grafham Water Marathon, helping to raise more than USD 33,000.
Volunteers are always needed in the boarding houses in Peru.
Naturally, Spanish is essential in order to work in the boarding houses, and you can Learn Spanish with us – preferably to an advanced level – before you volunteer.
This facilitates communication with the children, their parents as well as the team in Peru.
Volunteers should also be able to commit to at least two months. This gives the children in the boarding houses continuity and means that you have time to really get to know the work, the team and the children and you can really make a difference.
If you feel you are well-suited to volunteer in the boarding houses, please contact us.

The Kaieteur falls in Guyana are one of the world’s tallest single-drop waterfalls by volume of water. At 226 metres they are almost 5 times higher than the Niagara falls and have an average flow rate of 663 cubic metres per second. They are located in the Kaieteur National Park which is roughly 241 kms south-west of Georgetown within the Pakaraima Mountain Range. They are also totally off the beaten path and unspoilt. This means that you may be one of only a handful of people visiting when you go – unlike the Iguassu or Niagara Falls. Legend …
