Mind opening

I loved this experience! It was amazing to spend a month abroad learning about a new culture and contributing to my experience as a social worker. I would recommend this program because they also help plan your weekend trips. However, sometimes it was unclear what activities we would be doing the communication was a little confusing at times. Overall, it was a great experience and for the price it's highly recommended

Otuzco summer 2017!

Really enjoyed my experience with Vive Peru in Otuzco! The program was a good mix of work and learning, along with fun and exploring the country. I thought that Vive Peru offered a good amount of support throughout my time there, and the program as a whole was well organized. I gained a lot from my experience in Peru, both in terms of medical knowledge and in terms of self growth!

Rad!!

I participated in the VivePeru Summer 2017 Session One program and the experience was nothing short of amazing! I lived in Trujillo with two other girls in the program and we stayed with a host family who cooked us home made Peruvian meals everyday! Monday-Friday we went to work at the hospitals. We were able to be observe doctors in their everyday life to life situations in the hospitals and we even got to watch a few surgeries! On the weekends we didn't have work so we traveled to many different places and were able to hike in the most beautiful mountains. This was an experience of a life time and I am so sad to be leaving! There is no better way to meet new people, learn Spanish, learn about medicine, and experience a new and amazing culture all in one!

Peru!!

My experience in Peru was truly amazing! I learned so much in just a short 5 weeks, and I was able to meet some awesome people along the way :) I would recommend this program to anyone who has a heart for traveling and is interested in clinical medicine/public health or social work!

I don't want to leave!

I am so happy to have spent the past month in Otuzco, I fell in love with the town, the family who hosted us, and the doctors who we worked with! They all did everything they could to make our experience memorable and educative. I also enjoyed returning to Trujillo and traveling on the weekends for a change of scenery and to get to know more of Peru!
