Stay and Contribution

Expand Peru finances its projects through fees (Payments) granted by volunteers for their stay. We do not depend on international or national economic funds or public programs.

Stay and accommodation

For accommodation of volunteers, we have two options, which have been designed to guarantee comfort and safety.

  • Residence for volunteers: It is a pleasant place in which volunteers from different parts of the world live together. It is accessible from the city center, has shared bedrooms, a bathroom with hot water, a living room and full kitchen, and wi-fi and international tv. In this type of accommodation, food is not included, but you can freely use the kitchen and all other services at no additional cost.

  • Family Accommodations: In this unique experience, you will live with a traditional Peruvian family, and experiencePeruvian culture everyday. You will also learn and practice Spanish in a direct and active way. Families will provide you a bedroom, complete meals (three meals per day – breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and all the comforts of home. You can choose between a family in the city or one in the rural area.

  • Important: All families have been carefully selected.We have evaluated family composition, customs, ease of adapting to different types of people, ease of communication, etc. This is done in order to place you with a family in which you feel comfortable and very safe.


Expand Peru does not depend on international or national funding. Projects are self-financed projects by the contributions made by volunteers for their accommodation and food.

Payments are made during your first three days in Peru. Prices are in US dollars, but can also be paid in soles or euros, at the exchange rate on the day.

We do not make any additional charges. However, you will have to take care of your personal expenses (public transport, phone calls, entertainment, extra water, excursions, medicines, food, etc.)
