My wife Jessica and I (Henry) are an international couple with our 2 children, living in the North of Peru. I am a medical veterinarian by trade, specializing in horses. Jessica has her education in preventative wellness and is a stay at home Mom raising our daughters. Horseback riding is our main scope, but family rural life requires a wide variety of volunteer profiles to keep us evolving. Our volunteer opportunity (and our home) is in the village of Montevideo. Which is a small village approximately 2 hours away from the larger city of Chachapoyas. Notes: *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ we ask all potential volunteers to do a video call meeting. This helps YOU get to know us, and US to know you more. *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ both you and I reserve the right to quit the volunteer agreement at any time and for any reason. For this reason we ask all our volunteer to have a back up plan.

I had an absolutely wonderful time with this family. It was a beautiful and intimate way to experience rural Peru. The work was sometimes difficult, but there was always plenty of time to relax. The people in Montevideo were quite friendly, and by the end of my stay I wish I had been staying longer. I also enjoyed the food. Jessica made sure to accomodate my sweet tooth! Bianca and Amelia are such sweethearts as well, and it was a pleasure getting to spend time with them. Henry is very hardworking and passionate about his project, and I will miss my Peruvian family very much.

La zona donde se ubica tiene mucho por rescatar y descubrir, fue motivador el trabajo que Henry y su familia estuvieron realizando para lograr su meta y aun queda tiempo para poder ver los resultados y aporte que tendrán para ellos y el proyecto que llevan en marcha, espero todo salga bien los próximos meses así mas gente pueda descubrir esa parte tan buena del Perú. Siempre fueron atentos, buena comida, y comodidades suficientes diría tomando en cuenta que es un distrito pequeño fuera de la capital de provincia. Espero poder regresar y ver que el trabajo realizado tuvo éxito! Saludos!

Me encantó! Henry y toda su familia fueron geniales. Me encantaba salir a caminar en las tardes especialmente por el bosque de Eucalypto. Un hogar muy acogedor

Mi experiencia con Henry, Jessica, Bianca y Amelia fue única. Estoy muy contenta con la hospitalidad brindada y por todo lo que aprendí. Me retó a mi misma a probar y creer en mis capacidades y realizar actividades que estando en la ciudad uno deja de valorarlas o las olvida. Muy muy bonita experiencia. Henry tiene una visión sin límites de todos los proyectos que tiene en mente y estoy segura que con la ayuda de todos nosotros lo podrá llevar a cabo. Es un aprendizaje integral , desde familia, agricultura, caballos, naturaleza, proyectos sociales , etc, etc.
Muchas gracias Henry y Jessica.

Beautiful place, you can have a espectacular touch with the nature, all the views are awesome as the people in the house.

The food was always tasty and organic, that’s for me the most important thing.

Henrry is a guy emotional and funny who have a fantastic purpose. He is in the way of something big and need people who have this kind of energy to create it, if you are one of them, go and enjoy the Henrry’s dream.

Thanks for everything
I’m really glad to meet you guys
Good Luck

Nunca olvidare a,
