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.

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!!!
