Cusco is an amazing place to volunteer in. It gives an unfiltered view of many cultures, between the ancient Inca Empire, the Hispanic culture, and the modernizing of an up-and-coming city. It features a host of tourism sites, and as such people are used to foreigners and generally are kind and open if you know some Spanish and communicate with them. I think I'll always appreciate Hispanic and South American cultures for "what they are" and how awesome they can be because of the experiences I had in Peru.

How can this program be improved?
It was pretty good overall. Sometimes it was a bit crowded in host family houses, but my personal experience (a bit of an exception) was pretty good.

I would definitely recommend this trip for anyone interested in working with children in the future as volunteering to help in a Peruvian classroom with around 25 children will quickly prepare you for all kinds of jobs in childcare. One thing that stands out about this trip is that all of the volunteers across the different programs offered in Cusco by volunteering solutions often join together to see the different parts of Cusco as a group. This trip can easily be undertaken alone as it is easy to make friends and travel companions once you reach Cusco.

How can this program be improved?
This program could be improved by offering one event each week where all of the volunteers are able to meet each other , I.e at a dinner

Coming to south American for 2 weeks without family was a challenge for me at first, but the welcoming staff members/host family helped a lot. I also made loads of friends from all around the world. I worked at a nursery for children ages 3-5, and really enjoyed it. I couldn't speak any Spanish when I came, but i ended up learning some from the children. I got to see how the community in Cusco lived and saw how different it was to home life. I got to see parades (even walk in one with the children), celebrate in festivities and do lots of sightseeing in my free time. I felt very safe here and enjoyed the social life in the plaza. I would highly recommend this programme, but would suggest relatively strong spanish speaking levels.

Me parece que en mi caso, mi programa ubicado en Anta estaba demaseado lejos para ir y volver cada día... Además, costó un poco que los profesionales del hospital nos adaptaran a la rutina, por no decir que no nos dejaron participar las enfermeras en cosas tan simples cómo limpiar heridas, cosa que una estudiante de 4o esta capacitado! Por otra parte, muchas enfermeras y doctores fueron muy amables y nos dejaban hacer cosas!

How can this program be improved?
Mejorando la proximidad del centro y que los medicos/enfermeras se impliquen un poco más.

I volunteered in a kindergarten in Cusco for two weeks. The experience I had was absolutely amazing. The people at the kindergarten were great and I loved working there and I met many new friends from all over the world. Eventhough I was there to volunteer, I still got to see a lot of the city and go on many fun daytours. My host family, the other volunteers and the staff of Volunteering Solutions were all very welcoming and made my trip even better!
