The children don’t just need professional helpers, they need smiles and love, fun and laughter. Everyone has different skills. All of them can be used onsite and WILL make a difference. So come with an open mind and heart and you will take more away with you than you think!
Suzy Butler, Founder of Kiya Survivors


Kiya offers the opportunity to travel to Peru as a family and volunteer at the Mama Cocha projects. This is a unique experience for families to experience volunteering and travelling together.

We have led families with children as young as 4 and the experience has proved beneficial and fun for everyone!

The maximum group size for a family programme is 12.

This hands–on experience can be life changing. As well as contributing to improving the projects in Peru and the homes of the children, new friendships are formed across different cultures and continents, new skills are developed and new experiences gained, which will never be forgotten!

Please get in touch if you would like a bespoke family programme or are interested in joining one!
