Me pareció muy bien el proyecto y mi experiencia con los niños fue muy buena. Me voy muy contenta de haber podido servir un poco en la guardería y ojalá muchos más puedan venir y vivir esta experiencia, que me confirma que es mejor dar que recibir, porque todo lo que te dejan los niños es muy bonito y sobre todo agradecer el poder participar en este proyecto. También estoy muy agradecida con la familia que nos ha recibido por todas sus atenciones y también el poder aprender un poco de ellos. La atención por parte de los coordinadores fue muy buena, la orientación que nos dieron fue muy clara y siempre estuvieron muy pendientes de todas nuestras necesidades. Además fue una gran oportunidad para conocer este país del cual me llevo experiencias muy buenas.

Fue una muy grata experiencia el poder participar en este proyecto, es una buena forma de llegar a conocer otras culturas. El staff es maravilloso, nuestra host family siempre fue muy amable, la convivencia fue muy buena y logramos crear unos bonitos lazos con ellos, en cuanto a los coordinadores locales no tengo más que agradecerles, su atención ha sido maravillosa y han sido muy comprensibles en cuanto los problemas que se nos han presentado. Definitivamente lo volvería a hacer, han sido dos semanas llenas de grandes experiencias, en todos los aspectos, hemos conocido mucha gente de otros países que también han estado como voluntarios y algunos otros en los tours que hemos tomado, además de poder conocer lugares hermosos aquí en Perú.

How can this program be improved?
Sería bueno que pusieran un poco más de atención a las actividades realizadas en los proyectos, porque algunas veces no se toma muy en cuenta a los voluntarios.

At first it was really strange to work with handicapped kids. But after a few hours everything was perfect. It got easier every day and you get to know how to handle it. To say goodbye was probably the hardest thing on that trip. I really enjoyed the host family aswell. At Edith's place you feel like your part of the family from the first day. All the other shorttrips to Rainbow Mountain, Michu Picchu etc. were good organized. It was amazing to see some of the most beautiful places on earth. The views were just incredible, outstanding and beautiful. The weather in Machu Picchu wasn't good but it was still totally worth it. The only thing I regret on this trip is, that I lost my phone in a taxi. But that is totally my fault. I might come back some day to look how the kids are doing, they are so adorable. I will definetly never forget this expirience.

We were able to work with dissabled children at the house „Kusi Wasi“.
You need some patience but it‘s wunderful to see the joy in the kids eyes when you arrive and threw the hole day. The programm was free, there are some people that work there and help you in every case. We played, painted, played again, went to parks and played there, showed them some games. They‘re happy about everything you do with them and that gives them attention.
We usally worked 3-5 hours a day. Either in the morning or in the afternoon.
Bring some „work cloths“ with you. Around 2 shirts and 1 pants that can get dirty and painted.
We stud at a host family (3 Persons) and they were so kind and he food was really good too. We had diffrent room/apartment witch gave us some privacy. The center is reached in around 20 minutes by bus. They show you exactly how the bus and taxi systems work. So you don‘t have to be scared that you get lost somewhere.

How can this program be improved?
The description could be a bit more spezific. Everything else was totally fine.

I went to the dental program in Palampur, India on January 2019.
The experience is amazing.
The program was from 4th - 11th of January, each day we drove for half an hour in between the Himalays mountains to reach a village to provide basic dental treatment and dental checkups.
The local coordinators were very helpful, providing us with the dental instruments needed and translating what the patients were saying. The local team was very welcoming and made us feel right at home!
We had enough free time where we explored Palampur, went up the Hiamlayas and took a small hike where it snows, we also visited Mcleogjan the city of buddist monks and we took a walk through the tea gardens and took a tour through the tea factory!
This experience was very beneficial on both academic and personal level. Being in such enviroment helped us maximize our abilities and learn to provide medical care with whatever we have.
Working and treating patients in villages taught us alot on how to manage whateber situation we are put in.
Honestly, this trip was far more beneficial than most hands on workshops I ever did.
I highly encourage anyone who is looking for a life changing experience to sign up for the next mission.

How can this program be improved?
1- Include one day where the volunteers visit a school to provide dental checkups for children and teach them proper oral hygiene.
2- Try to include one or 2 dental technicians that will be available during the time of the camp to provide dentures for edentulous patients.
3- Invest in portable dental hand peices to be able to drill and fill more carious teeth, so the volunteers are not limited with only hand peices.
4- Invest in flouride vanish to reduce caries in children.
