Voluntourism - 14 Days in the Bolivian Altiplano

Voluntourism in Bolivia
 
14 day Voluntourism program in the Andean communities Mallasa and Jupapina, including 2-day tours to the deep blue Lake Titicaca, trekking tour to Muela del Diablo, visit to the bizarre Valle de la Luna and Bolivian cooking lessons.
 
Just 15 km from the center of the Bolivian capital La Paz, the boroughs of Mallasa and Jupapina are impressively embedded in the elevations of the Andes. Because of its natural beauty and tranquility, the region is a popular destination for international travellers, as well as for the Paceños (residents of La Paz), who want to escape the hustle and bustle. In Mallasa and Jupapina you mainly find Aymara indigenous people; their culture and language is part of the plurinationality of Bolivia.
 
As placements for your volunteering, you can choose between:
 
  • Valley of the Moon Kindergarten and After-School meeting
  • Zoo of Mallasa
