 “Open Source” Volunteer Work

Volunteer work is free. We strongly believe that one should not have to pay in order to help others while volunteering abroad. We have an ethical commitment and social responsibility to our volunteers and to the people we help. We are not a business or a travel agency with merely a social “attitude” and believe that such organizations are in a position to take advantage of volunteers and of the community.

At Sharing Dreams Peru you can see exactly where your donations go, with total transparency. As a volunteer you will have access to our database and will be able to verify our finances and activities.

Our principle mission is to offer an alternative to commercial volunteer programs, with a focus on free and direct work with the community, without any kind of intermediary between the volunteers and the people they help. What this means is that the volunteer may devote his or her energy, enthusiasm, and resources directly to a cause, and to offer help for its own sake. With direct participation such as this, the volunteer can make a contribution according to his or her own abilities and desires.
As a volunteer, you may choose to participate in various ways—from filling a support position to managing a community program. You will be a real part of our community. You are not obligated to us in any way and you will contribute only in the ways in which you wish to participate. Our role is to coordinate and facilitate free and direct work between the volunteers and the community.
Everyone has the opportunity to share his or her knowledge and abilities. For example, if a volunteer has particularly good Spanish skills, he or she may help other volunteers improve their Spanish. The results benefit both the individual and the team. We encourage this type of sharing in all aspects of volunteer work with Sharing Dreams Peru.
