Otra Cosa

Las Camelias 431
Huanchaco, Peru


Based in Huanchaco, Otra Cosa sets international volunteers up with 27 local projects throughout Peru. Opportunities in and near Huanchaco include assisting with constructing a school, bakery and garden in a shantytown 10 minutes away, volunteering at local health clinics, providing psychological support for ex-street children, and leading women empowerment workshops. Volunteers can also use their skills to teach English or help out with a local surf school that gives free lessons to poor local kids. Another way to contribute is by cooking or waiting tables at the Otra Cosa Restaurant in Huanchaco, which  donates 50 percent of its tips to the organization. Each project has its own requirements and minimum length of stay, typically a minimum of one month. Volunteers can stay in the Otra Cosa Volunteer House in Huanchaco ($3.80-7.50 per night), or the organization can set you up with a local homestay or other accommodation option.
