This is a five day trip that changes everyones lives! You are invited to join a small team that will be building cooking stoves in the highland villages of Peru. Most Peruvian women in these villages still cook in a mud hut with poor ventillation and soot soaked walls balancing their pots on stones above open flames. This trip immerses you into true Peruvian culture that you won’t see while out with your tour groups, yet due to the schedule, you are able to incorporate it into a longer holiday if you wish.
You will meet in Cajamarca, Peru at noon on Monday for lunch at the Hostel. You’ll have a stovebuilding class for 3-4 hrs in the afternoon. The next day you’ll meet the local family you’ll be building the stove for and help transport the materials. Day three you build the stove for the family, on Day four you complete the work and enjoy the family hospitality. On Friday, breakfast is cooked on the new stove!!! You arrive back in Cajamarca Friday afternoon.
Departures: Monday Departures from U.S. year round
Price: From U.S. $435.00 excluding flights (5days), including building supplies
