My time in Peru

Hello everyone! I am currently volunteering with the Pod Community Education project. I have been here since November and I leave in April. This project really has been and still is a really humbling and enlightening experience; immersing oneself in another culture is fantastic. It is so rewarding watching kids in poverty progress through education and the connections you make with the kids are most definitely the highlight for me. This project is a great way to improve your Spanish, I arrived with minimal Spanish oral and written skills in November and I have improved dramatically since then. The Peruvian Volunteers are great, as is Yuri, the Director. I do recommend if possible coming for 2 months or more because the bond you make with the children increases the longer you stay. I came as a Volunteer and I am now Temporarily the International Coordinator so you never know what may happen!
