Color My World is excited to announce our 2020 humanitarian expedition to Cusco, Peru!
Two sessions sold out overnight last year!
We will be working in San Gabriel at a small private kindergarten, not receiving any governmental support. We want to provide a healthy school climate, where underprivileged children can have qualitative education but also where they learn about values, group work as well as individual development. Color My World will be working on a variety of improvement projects at the school and spending a lot of time with the Peruvian children, teaching them English, playing games, sharing art education and teaching them mini-classes. The volunteer house where will stay is located at San Sebastian District, at 10 minutes in taxi from the main square of Cusco.
Please Note: Tour Prices to Machu Picchu and local sites are not tax deductible and a portion of this trip will be paid to our sponsor travel agency to cover sightseeing.. Space is provided on a first come, first serve–deposit–basis. Once the donation/deposits have been received we will move to a waiting list or add another week if demand requires. CMW reserves the right to cancel the trip due to low enrollment. Full donation/deposit will be refunded in case of cancellation. Please do not book your flights until we have sent out the email that the trip is progressing Color My World will not be responsible for air bookings in any situation.
