Peru Volunteer Reviews
Submitted by Melanie Willrodt - University Hamburg | April 01, 2017
To go to Peru was one of the best decision I have made so far and to go with Peru volunteer made my stay in this amazing country even better. This organisation showed me Peru from a completely different side, than you can experience it when you are a tourist there. I really enjoyed working with the kids, it was a new situation for me standing in front of a class, but they gave me all the help I needed and made me feel comfortable. What I really appreciate about Peru Volunteer is, that everything is so personal there. They support you in the projects, give you help and tips when you need some and you really recognise that they care about you and are trying to make your time in Peru unforgettable. I am so thankful that I had the chance to make all this experience and to meet all this amazing people.

I will definitely come back again!
Combination of free time, work and fun
Submitted by Jana Krämer - Universität Tübingen | February 15, 2017
I volunteered for about 3 months with Peru Volunteer after having a really amazing month learning Spanish in Cusco, which is a really nice city with many opportunities for cultural events but also parties and meeting new people.
From my first day there I felt home, mostly because of the nice coordinators that always helped to organize and told you about the best places to go, and because of the other volunteers.
My time in the projects (volleyball, teaching English) was a lot of fun. Of work as well, of course, but I always enjoyed doing it. The children were amazing as were the teachers who always tried helping us if there were any problems in class.
Afterwards, I spent two months traveling through South America and that was really worth it. I would recommend doing that after the projects to everyone of you!
Amazing way to learn Spanish
Submitted by Dirk Gietelink - Amsterdam Netherlands | February 14, 2017
Because of my short stay I only had time to learn some Spanish, not to teach the English, although I would have loved to do so. During my days in Cusco I was together with teacher and guide Libia, a really warm and funny person. She managed to bring my Spanish to the next level in only a matter of days, while seeing all nice places in and around Cusco.
I'm now trying to keep up my Spanish by talking to my Spanish colleagues, and still benefitting from what I learned that week.
If you plan to go to Peru, you should definitely get in contact with Peru Volunteer, you won't regret.
Great and unforgettable time with Peru Volunteer
Submitted by Conny Lotter - Technical University of Munich | January 15, 2017
I stayed with "Peru Volunteer" for half a year in 2015. It was a great time because I met a lot of nice people and I got to know an amazing country with its beautiful landscape and its interesting culture.
Among others, I organized English classes for children, adolescents and adults who wanted to learn the language. It was so much fun standing in front of the class and having the feeling to help these people and to enable them a better future by teaching English.
The coordinators of "Peru Volunteer" were always very nice and helpful. They always tried to find a solution if there were any troubles and I never had the feeling to be left alone. Everything was well organized, as far as it is possible in Peru. Of course you have to get used to many things in Peru which do not work as you might know it from home, but especially that makes your stay a great and unique experience!
I'm glad that I decided to do my voluntary work with "Peru Volunteer". I can highly recommend this organization.
