Challenges Abroad offers exceptional opportunities to further your life skills and to create incredible experiences, all while helping disadvantaged communities around the world. 


The Peru Health Promotion Challenge takes place in traditional Peruvian community in the Sacred Valley, where your help can make a real difference to the struggling locals. By working in these small communities you will have the opportunity to support them and improve overall health in the area.

You can also see the impact of our charity, the FutureSense Foundation, in the area. This volunteering project is truly unique and will test your ability to communicate and achieve goals as part of a team. You will see a different side of Peru whilst on this challenge, and make the most of your time in the country.

You can find out more about the Peru Health Promotion Challenge program by visiting the Challenges Abroad website.
