Adrian is a supportive young man, with a big heart, proactive and very sensitive. He cares a lot about others. He always gave his best in the projects. A wonderful person. We will miss you.



I can't say enough "thank you" for our amazing hosts or should I say my Peruvian family in Huancayo---- Ingrid and Bernabe, who are extremely welcoming, loving, and caring for every volunteer(and human being in general). This is my first volunteering experience, and I'm grateful that I was able to connect with this wonderful organization, and of course, the big hearted people in this organization. During the past one month, I was soaking in so many loving and precious connections that I will be forever grateful with.(I don't really speak Spanish. But it's okay, love transcends any languages :)

Sihan is a person with many qualities, extremely cheerful, very responsible, she got involved in different projects and worked very well on all of them, very dedicated, kind, tender and had a very good relationship with the team and group of volunteers at the residence. She made great relationships and a very significant and valuable work in all the projects in which she was involved, very committed to the population she helped. We will miss you, Sihan.

My partner and I had the most incredible 2 weeks with the organization. We worked each morning with adults and children with disabilities, and each afternoon in an after-school program with children in a small village. The hosts Bernabe & Ingred were incredibly welcoming and warm, always answering any questions and ensuring we were happy with the work we were doing. The local volunteers we worked with during the day, Abel & Eloiza were so patient and understanding and are such generous people who work extremely hard. We felt so welcomed, and this humbling experience will stay in our hearts forever.

Kate and Oliver are super cheerful people, willing to give their all for others. Very affectionate and respectful. Everyone who helped was very grateful and our team too. They have been very helpful in the projects they have helped.
They also adapted very easily to the Peruvian culture (Huancayo).
Thanks for all your help, you are spectacular people.
