Veronica and Suilma were very nice! They provided me with a great stay and I really loved my experience once I met another volunteer and was able to hang out with them. I think some things were not planned as well as expected but I’m sure the next volunteer will have better communication with the host:)

The volunteer experience, housing, people, and flexibility were amazing! The hosts were incredibly kind and helpful in getting us familiarized with Huancayo and our volunteer sites. Every day they offered us an interesting tour or activity. This was a really great first experience, and I recommend.

There is no words to describe this experience. I stayed two weeks with Veronica's parents, Carlos and Rosa, who were extremely welcoming and caring. I learned a lot about animals at the zoo, and the team over there was patient and very nice with me. I was sad to leave after two weeks. Huancayo has a lot to over, and there are very interesting day trips with tour agencies. If you want to discover the Peruvian culture, and meet amazing people, this adventure is for you!

We had a wonderful experience with Vero and Su! They welcomed us warmly and made us feel part of the family, cared about our physical and emotional well-being and made us discover the Peruvian culture.
They offered us social work tailored to our needs and wants, while the amount of work was always sufficient to have some free time. Vero and Su have a lot of meaningful and impactful social projects and we encourage everyone to go and help along 🥰

Vero y Sulima han sido unas gurús increíbles. Me sentí en casa y me acogieron tanto que me sentía parte de la familia. Vero se involucra muchísimo en ayudar y tiene muchísima vocación, es una mujer sumamente fuerte y grande. Me sentí demasiado feliz con ellas. Sulima tiene una conexión impresionante con los animales y con la naturaleza, me inspira a ser como ella. Me hicieron sentir acompañada en mi primer viaje sola, de verdad no hubiera sido lo mismo sin ustedes. No pude haber llegado a un mejor lugar. GRACIAS infinitas. ME ENCANTÓ conectar con ustedes! las quiero! Nos vemos en México!
