Azul Wasi is a place like no other.
I only spent three weeks at the orphanage, but cannot even begin to describe how difficult it was to say goodbye.
It was beyond incredible to witness the love between all children and adults, whilst getting to become a temporary part of this beautiful family.
This truly was a unique and eye opening, once in a lifetime experience that I will forever be carrying near and dear to my heart; just like the kids.
Muchas gracias por todo, Azul Wasi. Los extrañaré a todos!

Tal y como indica el nombre Wasi en quechua, Azul Wasi es un HOGAR con todas las letras. Ha sido una experiencia 10. Alcides es una persona admirable, muy respetuosa, amable y implicada con su proyecto. Realmente ha sido un regalo conocerle y poder aprender de toda su experiencia y sabiduria. Toda la gente que forma parte de Azul Wasi, como David, la señora Luz y la señora Filomena, son personas con un gran corazón. Los chicos estan llenos de valores que no se aprenden en ninguna escuela, y la vivencia con ellos ha sido increïble. Muchas gracias, Azul Wasi!

Minha experiência no Azul Wasi foi incrível! A casa que recebe crianças esta localizada no meio das montanhas. A rotina é muito tranquila: estar presente, brincar, ajudar nas tarefas de casa, ajudar na cozinha e estar atenta às necessidades de cada um. As pessoas e o lugar são muito acolhedores: existe calma, comida saudável e privacidade quando quiser! Recomendo essa experiência para quem quer se conectar com crianças, praticar espanhol, conhecer a culinária peruana e viver uma imersão cultural. É uma experiência única e maravilhosa!!

Esta foi a melhor experiência da minha vida. Aqui fui muito feliz e aprendi muito mais do que ensinei.
1 mês é o tempo ideal mínimo para ficar no orfanato, para criar relação com as crianças e estabelecer laços e rotinas.
Recomendo vivamente a todos os que queiram passar a ver a vida com os outros olhos!
