My amazing time in the Childcare program in Lima, Peru.

I first volunteered with IVHQ in 2016. After my first experience, I knew that I had to do it again. I chose to travel to South America this year, specifically Lima, Peru. Going in, I had no real expectations except to go in with an open mind and an open heart. My time in the childcare program was unbelievable. I got to interact with teenage moms, their babies and the staff. Everyday I went into work feeling so blessed and excited to share my skills but also to learn new skills from the girls. Everyone was so kind and helpful every step of the way. I ever felt unsafe or unwanted. I also really loved my volunteer house. By the end of my two weeks, I had gotten to know my fellow volunteers so well that I felt like I was leaving best friends behind. Volunteering both times with IVHQ have left me feeling so blessed and grateful to get the opportunity to experience something like this on my lifetime. I always recommend the organization to my friends and family because I want them to experience all the great things I did. I will without a doubt be signing up with IVHQ for a third time, I am in love with them.

I will never be the same

Going to Lima, Peru put a lot into perspective. The orphanage experience had an incredible impact on my life. I would recommend volunteering abroad to anyone any age. It is a great work to experience new things while at the same time making a positive difference.

If its even a blimp in your mind, just do it and make it happen!

Thanks IVHQ for helping me make it happen
