Cadip volunteer project review:
"I had such a great time volunteering in Peru. Learning the culture and helping the kids was an experience I'll never forget! I met such great people from all over the world that I still keep in touch with. I'm actually trying to figure out what program I'd like to do next! It was a little challenging not speaking the language well but I got by OK. I would recommend this program to anyone! I can't wait to do it again!"
