I volunteered with the Sharing Dreams Project in August 2017. It was a great experience - I got to learn much about Peruvian culture, particularly in the central Andes where the project is located, explore local attractions and historical and cultural sites, and was exposed to the delicious cuisine of Peru. The coordinators are very supportive and prioritize cultural exchange in addition to ge volunteer work. Working with the children and helping to teach English was very rewarding, and the reception of the children, who are eager to learn and play, was heartwarming. I'm very glad I got the opportunity to volunteer for this organization!
