Light Up A Life - Volunteer with WindAid

 

Change your world – Experience volunteer-work abroad on sustainable and environmental projects making an immediate and direct improvement on the lives within Peruvian communities.

 

WindAid offers 4-week placement programs based in Trujillo, Peru, geared towards people interested in directly improving the lives of those living without the benefits of electricity.

 

Anyone can participate in WindAid as there are NO PREREQUISITE SKILLS REQUIRED nor knowledge of wind turbines or engineering.  We will guide volunteers every step of the way (in English or Spanish) to ensure an educating and rewarding experience.

 

The volunteer experience is ideal for anyone with an interest in addressing climate change, developing appropriate and renewable technologies, engineering and design, or for someone who just wants to make a positive change in other peoples lives.

 

A normal working day is from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. A typical schedule for the WindAid 4 week program is outlined below.
