Reviews

Absolutely Incredible
"My stay here was absolutely incredible. It was a lifetime experience which will be always a part of me. But let’s go point by point: the office is very welcoming, and also include the possibility to have your stay there, I loved the idea immediately. And in the reality is also the most comfortable. Huanchaco is a friendly, international and surf town. Love it! The workload for volunteers is not that intensive but it’s actually depends on you, how much you put in. We have three half days work and some extra time that the volunteer can manages himself. This schedule gives you the opportunity to do other things in your free time. Like discovery the ancient ruins and the archaeological site, doing WorkAway or simply do remote work. The people who work here are incredibly kind and I felt very connected with them. We worked a lot about photography from all the basic themes to develop their photography ideas! These teenagers are so bright, lively, they brought lots of happiness and satisfaction in the time I spent with them. I recommend this project to all those who want to do a volunteer work that is creative!"- Chiara Chizzini
