What opportunities exist to make a decent living? (Lima)

Hi,
I'm a Peruvian born Canadian. I'm interested in pursuing a career in sustainable development, advocacy, social justice, human rights, or mediation. At present I am a student of peace and conflict studies, I have a background in photography and have a certificate in documentary film production and have produced several short pieces. I'm looking for a change of pace and was considering moving to Peru to pursue some work pertinent to my long term career aspirations, but I was also wondering how I could afford to live comfortably in Peru making a decent wage as the average Peruvian salary is quite low. I'm happy to volunteer and gain experience at different organizations however I still need an income so that I can sustain myself. Any suggestions?
