Despite being a local organization, Sayariy strongly values the transformative potential of intercultural exchange. Welcoming volunteers from diverse corners of the globe into these overlooked communities fosters a powerful two-way exchange with immeasurable value. Individuals from varied sociocultural backgrounds come together, sharing and creating unforgettable experiences.
Our volunteer program offers you the chance to become part of a family in Peru, welcoming you into their home with open arms. Those who travel from afar fully immerse themselves in the local culture by living with families who generously share their environment, cuisine, customs, culture, and celebrations. Most importantly, they share their unique kindness and hospitality, leaving an unforgettable impression on anyone fortunate enough to experience it. Undoubtedly, those who join us should be prepared to depart with a desire to return!
For the local community, hosting individuals from abroad presents a fantastic opportunity to embrace new ideas, perspectives, traditions, and cultures. It’s a chance to explore music, literature, language exchange, culinary delights, and much more, enriching both the visitors and the host community alike.
The contribution of our international volunteers is invaluable and plays a crucial role in the community development efforts promoted by Sayariy. Yet, what truly sets this experience apart is the opportunity to build intercultural connections. By exploring diverse spaces and cultures, volunteers not only contribute to community development but also foster meaningful connections that transcend borders, offering invaluable opportunities for personal growth and understanding. Engaging with different communities allows us to cultivate a more inclusive and compassionate world.
