Volunteer in Oxapampa - Community


Travel to our community base in Oxapampa, a unique town in the heart of the jungle. Here you will have the opportunity to assist local Peruvian communities to work on development projects and immerse yourself in the culture by learning about some of the local customs.

In your free time explore the town, which is also known for hosting the popular annual Selvamonos Music and Arts Festival. Visit the main plaza, the town's church, Iglesia Matriz Santa Rosa, or take a stroll along the Paseo de los Colonos, a walkway lined with benches. Or make the most of this rainforest setting by spending your time surrounded by breathtaking scenery. See if you can spot some of the wildlife specific to the rich canals and tropical rainforest of the area.

Both wildlife conservation and community development programs are run from this base. As a participant in the community development programs, you will be assisting the local people with various development initiatives, the most important of which is education. This means you could be involved in conducting educational workshops for the empowerment of the local community.

By taking part in these programs you will help us contribute to addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals, one of whose aims is to ensure inclusive and quality education for all. All of these initiatives will lead to an improved quality of life for many of the local communities.
