I will be going to Cuzco, Peru this summer for two months to volunteer with International Volunteer Headquarters and their partner Maximo Nivel. I will be participating in the childcare program working in orphanages, community centers, daycare centers, and schools. This work will help to improve the educational, emotional, and hygienic conditions of the children, since many in these settings lack the individual attention and emotional support they need. I have always dreamed of the chance to help children who were not given the same opportunities to flourish as I was so thankfully provided with. With your help I know that I will be able to provide some much needed love and aloha to these Peruvian children.
