About


The civil organisation "Sharing dreams " is developing and increasing its volunteering projects, working with "warmy" women groups here in the Andes. For the last three years, we have worked with national and international volunteers, developing activities and projects targeting the organisation and empowerment of groups of Andean migrant women. We focus on aspects such as gender equality, machismo and socio-cultural exclusion, domestic violence, violence towards women, sexuality, health, nutrition etc.

We are a registered legal entity. We develop projects on site, standing shoulder to shoulder with communities. We operate on the basis of a flat structure and teamwork (professionals, volunteers, communities).

If you are looking to contribute to a social volunteering project, with no intermediaries, that is developed by volunteers themselves, where you work in teams, offering you socio-cultural immersion atlittle to no cost(excursions, choices of language or cooking courses, access to knowledge on culture and folklore), in a rewarding and fun format, write to us.

During weekends, we organise group excursions to many places of interest, such as mountains, pre-Inca ruins, villages, camps, rainforests and waterfalls.
