Financial Principle

Proyecto Peru is a Closely Held Corporation (S.A.C.) We coordinate volunteering and internschips for free. We think that helping, without wanting anything in return, shouldn't be charged.

Coordinating volunteering and maintaining a network of projects cost money. These costs and our organisational costs, like rent, taxes, salaries, etc., are covered with other services like accommodation and Spanish classes.

Donations are common use in Peru. The donations are used to buy consumables or to improve projects on the long run. All the donated money goes 100% to the projects. Since Proyecto Peru has close contact with the projects, we watch over the correct use and appliance of the donated gifts.
