Cost:
US$10 a night to stay in volunteer housing and you have the choice between staying with boys or girls. All the money is directly allocated to the cost of running the volunteer houses. Volunteers are responsible for covering their own food costs.

Other information:
If you can do some fundraising before you leave, you can donate and / or use it on the kids during your stay. The most important costs are of course airline tickets, insurance and jabs (think of what you will need for vaccination if you travel elsewhere). The easiest way to get to Cusco is to have a flight to Lima, probably not direct! Then you can either take another plane directly to Cusco, or travel by bus. A pick-up can be arranged for US$10.
