We are Sircadia Project from Peru, an eco project that had started in 2008.

We manage over 110h of humid cloud forest, near the town of Quillabamba, in the province of Cusco. We are located in a closed valley with a private access, which creates an appropriate environment for our activities and the project of conservation on private level according to the Peruvian law.

Volunteering programmes

There are volunteering opportunities for everyone, there is plenty to do and plenty to learn at our eco project and so individual skills and interest can easily be applied.

Volunteers will be able to help in all working areas, such as construction, farming, gardening, tourism, teaching, as well as contribute with ideas to the overall design of the project.

Volunteers will live as part of the community and as such will also participate in the daily duties such as cooking, washing, shopping, etc.

Our project is about preservation of a native forest so that the local community and others can visit and enjoy the unspolit nature.
Also we aim to promote organic farming and eco community way of life.

It is not a volunteer programme that helps those in poor/under-educated areas, the programme is rather looking into the future.
This is a pioneer project, the work in all done manually, the food is cooked on fire, the bath is in the waterfall, the nearest shop is 5 hours away and we lack all commodities found in the city, in brief this is a great school of a real life experience, resource management and living with other people under one roof.

Please see conditions for volunteers >>

Who are we

The Sircadia Project has gone through various stages since it was projected in Spain about 20 years ago, and it has been taking shape with the collaboration and support of Ma Ines and Daniel from Lima, Jorge from Arequipa, Marifel from Madrid, and with the contributions in the form of stimulus, work, of a great group of brotherly minded people.

The promotion and global responsibility of the project gravitates around Albert from Girona (Spain), and his wife Gabi from Marl (Germany), veterans of life. Albert was born in 1946, and Gabi much younger was born in 19 …? . They have five children whose ages range from 15 to 30 years old, and have lived since they got together in the country with a naturist philosophy. Their children were even born in a natural way at home.

Spain and Europe became limited and did no longer offer the possibility of a life without pressures, in a spacious natural environment within their economical means where they could offer something real, and of quality to their children. South America was their best option and a paradise located in Peru called Madre Selva was granted to them by the Universe after putting the whole family through some tough tests.

Finally the ideal conditions have been put in place in order to accomplish this lifetime dream which we assumed as a part of our planetary mission, a dream which not only will benefit a few families and individuals, but in fact will serve as a model of experimental natural and harmonious living that goes in accordance with the present modern times.

Their vast experience in ecology, nutrition and health is available to this great project.
