When I went to Peru with World of Need last Summer it was my first time going to another country so I was a little nervous and full of uncertainties but I can honestly say that I had the most amazing experience! World of Need allows you to works directly with the local community and community leaders, it really becomes a family-like environment! You eat what the locals eat and really become involved and are able to impact the everyday life of the community! I only had a 3 weeks stay but I so wish I had stayed longer! They even do this awesome thing where they lower the price of your next trip with them once you've already completed a program with them so I am planning on going abroad with them again soon!
