ESCAPE trip

Once a year, PLB Voluntours invites a small group (10-12) of amazing women to join us on an 8 day ‘voluntour’ experience to Cusco, Peru.

Join us on an amazing two day trip to Machu Picchu (YES. thee Machu Picchu.), and a three day intensive volunteer experience at a local orphanage that Project Left Behind supports. There will be some city touring, alone time in between, and probably a pisco sour or two.

{PLB Volutour 2017 is an authentic adventure – NOT a luxury retreat.  Accommodations and activities can be a bit rustic at times.}

PLB Volutour 2017 will be 7 full days with participants departing and flying home on the 8th day.

What IS PLB VOLUNTOUR 2017?

PLB Volutour 2017 is an annual voluntour trip organized by NuttZo team members to bring awareness to the efforts of NuttZo’s non-profit of choice, Project Left Behind.

We invite a small group (10-12) of amazing women to escape from it all on a 7 day ‘voluntour’ adventure for women-only to Cusco, Peru, April 23-30, 2017.

You will NOT go home feeling rested. Sorry. You’re probably going to feel exhausted. (You can sleep when you get home.) But, you WILL go home feeling ALIVE and INSPIRED! This is our guarantee.
This will be our FIFTH trip to Cusco and we’re so flipping excited to share it with you.  We’re only doing this once a year so if something deep inside of you is calling ‘YES! I want this.’ then just get on the list to receive updates and information about registering.

PLB NuttZo LogosWho is ‘Project Left Behind’?

Project Left Behind (PLB) is a ‘project-based’ non profit that currently supports 4 independently run international orphanages.  PLB contributes 100% of donations (i.e. no overhead is skimmed off!) to select projects at the orphanages (e.g. new construction needs, food, medical needs, education).

What is NuttZo?

Danielle LiVolsi – the founder and CEO of the delicious organic 7 nut & seed butter – NuttZo, started  the non-profit, Project Left Behind (PLB) five years ago after adopting two awesome boys from the Ukraine. Nuttzo contributes a portion of its sales to PLB and PLB then donates money and sweet-volunteer-sweat to select orphanages around the world.

April 23-30th, PLB Voluntour 2017 will be providing the ‘sweat’ to a beautiful and much needed orphanage in Cusco, Peru and hopefully, YOU will be along for the ride.
