At A Rocha Peru we are privileged to have volunteers from around the world and throughout Peru join us in our work. We are able to pursue our organisational vision and effectively work out our three areas of action due to the invaluable support of these men and women.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us in all areas of our organisation – in the office, out in the field and with technical support. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in joining the A Rocha team!
Hugo’s Volunteer Experience:
‘As a volunteer for A Rocha Peru, I have worked as a tree nursery technician to oversee the production of the Huarango tree (Prosopis sp) and other native plants and to evaluate the fauna and flora in the ecosystems of Ica. I also coordinate and support events for environmental education and reforestation for A Rocha in Ica. I have learned through these experiences, mainly through conservation activities with communities.
Working with A Rocha Peru gives me the opportunity to learn, conserve, and acquire knowledge for the good of society as we pursue the conservation of these fragile ecosystems. Little by little the man that is destroying these ecosystems can become the caretaker of God’s creation.’
Hannah’s Volunteer Experience:
‘After three months’ language study, I’m now working with A Rocha’s Huarango reforestation project, which is helping to provide sustainable livelihoods and to conserve endangered species. I’m involved in research, practical work, community programs, environmental education and church work – everything I was looking for but didn’t think would be possible. Volunteering with A Rocha is an outworking of my service for God through caring for people and the natural world.’
