My experience was perfect! I did not know what to expect, but the host family was very welcoming and gladly showed me their way of life in Huancayo. Nearly everyday there was some new location to see or hike to trek through. I loved every day of my stay and I hope more people can get to experience Huancayo like I did!

Peru Peru Volunteering offers a variaty of Projects, that allow the volunteers to use many of their habilities and get to know different and awesome people. The hosts Vero and her family are incredible, super receptive and careful with us, volunteers. I felt at home in some way. There, I’ve worked with children in a kinder garden and at the Ministerio de Cultura de Peru Dirección Desconcentrada Junín. In both experiences, I could learn a lot, teach a little bit of my knowledges, practice my Spanish and, most of all, get in contact with amazing professionals and with that marvelous culture.

One of the best experiences of my life. Not only did i get to help the community but even feel at home as part of a family. Definitely worth it :) i miss it so much! And i loved sharing my passion with the students! Chiara from Malta

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!!!

i had the most wonderful experience in peru! Vero and her family made me feel like home since day 1 - they are very lovely, plus veru would take me around huancayo to explore the city and its food. The project, peru pero volunteering, offers numerous and amazing oppurtunities for you to make a real, positive change for the children in the junin region. thanks to the secondary project ninos del futuro, i had the amazing oppotunity to spend a week with the ashaninka tribe of santa guillermina, near satipo. it was an experience in which i got more than i gave. i really hope to be back soon!
