Trip of a lifetime!

9/10

What can I say, hands down the most rewarding experience of my life!
I just got back from my Peru program and the smile hasn't left my face. Actually the worst thing is going back to regular food haha. Beaches are beautiful, the local people are amazingly friendly and the kids are great! Recommended for anyone who likes traveling but wants to add a bit more meaning to the experience. Anyways im off to eat a boring lettuce and cheese sandwich haha

Volunteering in Peru

10/10

Volunteering here in Peru is such a once in a lifetime opportunity! You get to really see the reality of Peru and also its culture, the people and the beauty of the country. Here in Pimentel you are right on the beach and you can never run out of things to do! You can go for a fun surf, or take some lessons with the locals if you have been wanting to learn. Go try some of the best ceviche, Peru has to offer here in Pimentel, or if you feel like doing some other sight seeing or city life stuff go visit Chiclayo which is the main city that is about 20 minutes from Pimentel!

Street children project in Quito

8/10

I did a 2 week placement with the street children in Quito, the placement was great fun and the kids were amazing, i enjoyed the experience, i would have been able to bring more to the programme if my Spanish was at a higher level, it was frustrating at times not being able to communicate with the teachers and children.
I arrived in Quito during public holidays so we had the chance to take the kids to the public swimming pool and share a picnic lunch in the park.The children did not have much so a special treat was a huge day out and just to see them all smiling was really special.
Everyone was great and i would recommend spending a few days weeks or months experiencing a different look at life.

How can this program be improved?

I would have like if the teachers could have spoken more english, i was lucky that the other volunteers there spoke and understood Spanish, so helped me out. I have a basic understanding of Spanish but my conversational Spanish was poor.
