IWe were received with a very warm welcome and a heartfelt thanks by the town of Vicos in Ancash the other day for the donation of chairs that were made by Peru Tourism. The donation was made to the children of the primary school which is attended by 600 local students but unfortunately they lack many things, amongst them toys, books, furniture even basic sanitary equipment. The directors of Peru Tourism and staff were there on this very special occasion as Peru Tourism has adopted Vicos in the companies' volunteering programme to help assist in conservation of the environment, teaching, health and many other community projects.
Other items that were donated included water taps, water piping, cups, cement, office supplies, etc...

  5. It is like an exchange; you learn from the Peruvians and they, on the other side, are curious about your country .
  6. For you as a volunteer, this means gaining very helpful life and work experiences that you probably won’t find in your country of residence .

Volunteer in Hospitals      
   
This project is only for medical students or nurses in training. As such you’ve got the opportunity to assist a cardiologist and acompany him in his daily work.

"I am a medical student in New York who traveled to Peru after my first year. While in Peru the Macchu Piccu Spanish School was able to arrange a position for me with a cardiologist at the local hospital in Cusco. During my internship I was able to see patients with problems that I had only read about at home. This was an amazing medical experience which allowed me to get hands on practice. In addition, spending time interacting with the doctors and patients allowed me to integrate the Spanish skills that I was learning at the Machu Piccu School. I had an unbelievable time in Cusco, Thank you Machu Piccu Spanish School!" Brenden, USA
