Awareness Trips to Peru

Get ready for the trip of a lifetime!

On your trip to Peru, you will be welcomed by the local staff who will be your hosts for the week. You will visit the homes and communities of sponsored friends and learn about their joys and challenges while experiencing the beauty of the Peruvian people.


This covers food, lodging and most in-country transportation.
Airfare is not included.

What you’ll do

Day 1
Arrive in Lima. Local Unbound staff will welcome you at the airport and transport you to the hotel.
Day 2-3
Meet and spend time with your sponsored friends from Lima. Learn about the livelihood initiatives of families served by Unbound, such as hydroponic and urban gardening.
Day 4
Visit families in their homes in Lima and the surrounding area. Visit communities where Unbound works. Meet families heroically facing the daily struggles of poverty and learn about their hopes, dreams and struggles.
Day 5-6
Join one of the Unbound leader meetings and later watch a cultural performance. Visit some points of interest, such as Cerro San Cristobal to enjoy beautiful vistas of Lima, Morro Solar de Chorrillo to see the Christ of the Pacific statue or perhaps make a stop at the shore to dip your toes into the Pacific Ocean.
Day 7
Meet mothers and sponsored members. Attend a handicrafts fair prepared by the families to show you how they earn an income.
Day 8
Depart from Lima and return home, or continue your own journey in Peru.
Please note that this is a sample itinerary. A detailed schedule and additional information will be sent one to two weeks prior to departure in the pre-departure packet. Unbound will make every effort to offer the opportunity to attend Mass on Sundays.
