Looking for Free volunteer in Arequipa or LimaHi! I'm looking to do some free volunteer in Arequipa or Lima. I've been looking for hours on forums and internet without succes... It's a bit difficult because I can't spend more then a week, I don't want to pay these ridiculous companys to do some volunteer. My Spanish is basic and my English is not got enough to be tought. So, I don't have many possibilities so maybe one of you have been in the same situation and finaly found something.

4To be honest, with 1 week and not much Spanish you will almost certainly be more hinderance than help. You can try helpx.net and workaway.info for private individuals or small businesses who need a hand, and volunteersouthamerica.net for the more serious stuff and then post back here to share if you do come up with anything.

5I have to admit that I don't get this whole "voluntourism" thing. The willingness to give of yourself and your time is admirable but there is no need to fly to Lima to find a place where your energy and help can do some good.
Why not look in your own community for opportunities to do volunteer work with people whose language you know and whose culture you understand?
If you have a week in Lima or Arequipa, why not use the the time to practise your Spanish while you visit the sites and learn more about the culture.
