The orphanage is an incredibly positive environment, and it is hand out to be already wonder by the enthusiasm and energy of the boys. I cannot help but feel however that two weeks is simply too little time. Perhaps, yes, it is possible to contribute something in this time but it seems that all the boys, end some more than others need a greater degree of constancy in volunteers. Nevertheless I enjoyed my time there a great deal, and I hope to have contributed something if not a great deal.
Vanessa the volunteer coordinator’s commitment to us and her cause is clearly outstanding. The in country support has been excellent, and in many ways it seems she does the job of several people. Had I been awesome of the existence of her program, and had it catered for the little time we had, I would without hesitation have organized these two weeks directly through her.
The opportunity to stay with a Peruvian family was amusable. We were made to feel extremely welcome and were well cooked after.
