TESTIMONIALS

Vladimir Gruev, Bulgaria.
I came to Huancayo for 4 weeks in July 2012 and had a wonderful time. I volunteered for the community project, which main purpose was to build brick ovens for the poorest people in the rural area of Junin. It was incredible to see with my own eyes, how little effort from our side, could make such a big difference in the everyday life of the people in need. With only couple of hours work a day, we were able to provide them the possibility of healthier life.
On some afternoons we had free time, which I spent teaching English to little children. I was very nervous at the beginning because I didn't have any teaching experience and my Spanish was not very good. However, the children were so positive and eager to learn, that they made it very easy for me. We were able to learn from each other and have fun at the same time.
Outside the volunteer work I was also able to make a lot of new friends. The people in Peru are very genuine and friendly and make the first contact very easy. I will always remember my first shared taxi with people, that I have never seen before. I will definitely do this again, as long as I have the time and the financial resources available.

Minna L., Sweden I took part of the project for three weeks in March 2012 and had an amazing time with the children of Huancayo. I got to make an impact by teaching english with the little knowledge in spanish I had from before and I did as well have plenty of time to improve my spanish in a way I'd never done before. I did also get to know the peruvian culture through my stay with the family, cooking and through visiting various wonderful places near the city. If you want to make a visible change, a small direct organization such as "sharing dreams" is the best way to do it. Here your suggestions on improvements are valueble and are always listened to and since the project is very open minded they will make sure they take care of any possible skill you may have.
Timmi L., Sweden I came to Huancayo in March 2012 to work with children through "Sharing dreams", and did absolutley loved the feeling of actually teaching those children something. Even though my Spanish was limited the children helped me out and together we could understand each other, and both learn. "Sharing dreams" is a small organization where you work not only direkt with the children but also with the family that runs it, and there for you get the oppertunity to make your voice heard within the projekt, and the things you find important will be listened to. Not only will never forgett the projekt, but also the food, that most of it was completley new to me. The family that I got to know, that helped me, not only with my Spanish but also with understanding the Peruvian coulture. I am very thankful for my time here and will never forget
