“My HELP International experience changed my life. I made great friendships with my teammates and the locals. I served with them, learned from them, and laughed with them. The Peruvian people have hearts of gold. Not only was I helping them, but they were helping me. While in Peru, I had the chance to go to the majestic Inca ruins of Machu Picchu on a long weekend and loved it. I got to start my own project, something I found is very unique to this organization. Working at the orphanage and helping to get a bakery going to provide for the orphans was something that I will never forget. Everyone should have an experience like this.”
