    As someone interested in the medical field, ABV immediately piqued my interested. Working hands-on at a hospital was absolutely incredible, one can truly make a difference, even on such a small scale. Being in Peru also helped me expand my Spanish skills and provided a renewed interest in the language (as I haven’t taken a Spanish class since high school). The people here were very genial and welcoming. During the time I fell in love with South America and hope to return soon.
    Peru was an incredibly wonderful and welcoming country! This was my first time in South America and I loved my time here. In addition to having natural beauty, the city of Cusco was rather clean and amazing to travel around. We also went to some remote regions of the country, full of lakes, emerald valleys, and towering mountains. Seeing Machu Picchu was incredible. The train ride there was very scenic and although the hike was strenuous, it was very worthwhile. Overall, I enjoyed being in South America much more than I expected.
    On an average day, one heads to their volunteering program at around 8:15 am to engage in a series of activities. During the duration of my stay, I worked at Hospital in Cusco. During a period of 4-8 hours, several volunteers and I took care of disabled children who stayed at the hospital. Our duties included looking after the children, feeding them, and playing with them. After work, one typically has time to explore the city of Cusco. I had a wonderful time seeing the central area as well as outlying areas. Cusco is a lively town with beautiful architecture, kind people, and delicious food. One also had plenty of time to explore the rest of Peru.

    I had an amazing experience in Cusco, Peru. The volunteer work was truly life changing and I met such incredible people along the way. I loved getting to see the primary education system and how it worked especially because I one day would love to be a teacher. Talking to girls at the orphanage was incredible because I discovered how much we had in common and how happiness truly comes from within. The girls loved braiding my hair while asking so many different questions about the united states- they are so talented at doing hair and even tried to teach me how to braid! Abroaderview also created a vegetable garden at the orphanage with some other ABV volunteers, which is beautiful and the girls absolutely love! Walking around Cusco and going to the different markets and stores was also amazing! Everyone in the city is so incredible and I truly felt immersed in the wonderful culture here. My experience with A Broader View was amazing mostly because of the amazing coordinator Maria Elena. From the beginning Maria Elena made me feel comfortable and confident in my volunteer work and my trips around the city. She was always available to talk and made things so easy for me!! She was a big reason why I had such an incredible experience here in Cusco.

    I really enjoyed my time in Cusco. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of local people, as well as the beauty of the country. I learned a lot and gained new perspectives by working at both the hospital and the orphanage. I am very grateful for this experience.
