CARE Corps is a cultural exchange program for people interested in working as a volunteer and learning about social and development issues in Peru. CARE Corps volunteers interact with Peruvian communities in a variety of locally-driven projects. Located in the Andes Mountains, the program offers hands-on work opportunities, cultural exchange activities and educational sessions about global issues and CARE. CARE is one of the world's largest private international relief and development organizations. Founded in the aftermath of World War II, CARE enabled Americans to send millions of CARE Packages to survivors of the conflict. Over the years, CARE evolved to providing food aid, emergency relief, health care, education and other assistance to poor families in the developing world. Today, CARE works in more than 60 countries across Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
