The Experience

We organize activities where the children have chance to to be in contact with nature, while they learn first hand biology as well as their own history and enjoy learning new skills as rock climbing, trekking and farming.

A atenção, carinho, a presença contínua da Vero só vivendo para ver e crer. Toda a família participa e acolhe como se fizéssemos parte. O trabalho com as crianças da escola pública foi gratificante e senti que estava ajudando. Experiência única para conviver com uma família genuinamente peruana.

As a nurse, I had the opportunity to help in the Health Center, where i could learn and discover the cultural differences and their impact in peoples health.
In the children's program with the Huancayo kids I was able to discuss with them about various topics like health, higiene, relationships... with their unique point of view as a feedback. If you feel creative and full of ideas its an ideal proyect to help with!
Finally, I could spend some days with the Ashaninka native community, an experience which inspired me to continue with this kind of social work and coming back, thanks Vero!!!
