This Nutrition in Peru placement offers volunteers the chance to gain first-hand experience in nutritional research in a developing country and requires a commitment of four weeks and an intermediate level of Spanish to join. Volunteers will work alongside a local health administration to help alleviate poverty and malnutrition in the Huayopata District in the Cusco region.

There is a huge variety of work in which volunteers can get involved, this includes working alongside technicians in doing home visits and health check-ups, as well as creating awareness campaigns and educational materials.

As a volunteer taking part on this project, you play a vital role in maintaining and raising awareness of nutrition within the communities and also play an important part in raising the profile of the work that is being carried out within the towns.
