The aims of the programme are:
Our group programmes are flexible and can be designed to meet the needs of your group. Programmes are organised from our UK office by a dedicated Programme Coordinator, who will assist you though each step of the process.
Safety of the group is paramount. Groups participating in the Kiya Survivors volunteer programme are met at Lima airport by one of our bilingual coordinators, who remains with the group at all times. Care has been taken in designing all group itineraries to ensure that the group is safe and supervised yet experiences as much as possible and experience both the challenges and the magic of Peru.
We can take groups to both areas where we run our projects. In the South they will have the opportunity to help hands-on at The Rainbow House, our home for children and young people with special needs, assist with building projects on our Outreach Programme, organize sports days and much more! The Sacred Valley is a stunning area and they will have the opportunity to visit some of the most spectacular sites in Peru such as Machu Picchu and have an altogether unforgettable experience!
In the North, in Los Organos and Mancora, groups will have the opportunity to work hands on at Mama Cocha, be it helping hands on in the nursery class, looking after babies in the crèche, helping run workshops for our young people and getting to know our live in students. Trips to the Malgroves, local waterfalls, swimming with turtles and horse riding on the beach are some of the highlights to visit in this area.
The projects we offer on the group volunteer programme are carefully designed to meet a genuine need; we do not undertake projects that are not required by the children, young people or families of the communities we work with. They must also be sustainable; we only undertake projects that improve existing services or new projects that we can commit to continue to run.
• The Group Programme Coordinator can visit you and your group to talk about the programme and the work that we do in our centres. There is no obligation to sign up for a programme if we come to visit you but we do appreciate help with travel costs.
• Before departure a 2 day training programme can be delivered to your group either at our UK office or in your local area.
• Please see Volunteer Blog for the opinions and thoughts of current and previous participants of the Kiya Survivors Group Volunteer Programme

Kiya Survivors operates its volunteer programme to ensure there are enough hands to help with the young people in the centres, to encourage new ideas and enthusiasm amongst the staff and to help raise money for all our projects.
Kiya Survivors offers volunteer programmes in Peru for groups of young people aged 14 - 18 years old.

Kiya Survivors is dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people. We believe that programmes benefitting both the visiting young people and our projects are vital for a successful future.
The Group Volunteer Programme introduces young people to some of the challenges faced by children and young people around the world. We also think it gives them a once in a lifetime experience of working closely with some truly special people.
