Absolutely. First of all, the program is such an amazing cause that it deserves as many people and help as possible. Second of all, the children are so wonderful and deserving. Third, you guys are such amazing people that are doing a wonderful thing for this community, you deserve help. I loved you all.
Over the last twelve months we have made two visits. We fully recommend it to any person of any age (and you’ll have so much fun at the same time). Peru Luz de Esperanza is for you. The devotion to their programs is something that will be in our hearts and minds forever.

Yes. I think what you are doing for the rural children is very important. They have hardships but they are patient and try to make the best of the situation. Dale Neal
Yes, I'd recommend you to people who are prepared to be flexible with their skills and hard working Lance Jackson
100% I would!! The opportunity was stimulating and rewarding and I felt like I contributed to the local community. Paul
Absolutely; This is a very good organisation, very down to earth. The leaders of the organisation work hard and give a lot of their time, energy and heart to make it a success. Christine
Yes, the children need your help to enable a better future for them. Frank Ambrosius
In the month we stayed with you, I really felt you were my family and I felt very well taken care of. There was always enough of everything, and the Chupaka bread…very nice.
Nilton, thank you for taking time to listen to my broken Spanish and always trying to make me feel comfortable. It really meant a lot to me. Elly, thank you for being such an inspiration. You always put others first and it is obvious that you really care about the children, the mothers, and the families in this program. Jen Marlay
Peru Luz De
I would like to take Eva home with me to cook for my family. It is no wonder Peruvians are so healthy, they have such an excellent balanced diet. Thank you Eva, Elizabeth and Nilton!
The hospitality given by Elizabeth and Nilton has been fantastic and we feel that we have become part of their family. Maxine and Robert Roach
Our room was clean and comfortable, nicely decorated. Eva cheerfully catered for special diets, e.g. gluten free and dairy free. Lance Jackson
Eva was a fantastic cook. Great conversation around the table. Paul
A round of applause for Eva; I liked the "Ají de gallina" Lotte Bontje
I looked forward to every meal. Elizabeth
I am very impressed with the children. They are so well behaved and just want to learn as much as they can. They are the most loving, affectionate children I have ever met. They are also very intelligent, creative and artistic. They are a pleasure to work with. I will miss them a lot when I go home and would love to see them all again.
Oh my goodness. The children. I loved the children. They were so wonderful, loving, intelligent, and welcoming. The excitement that they had for the school, for the teachers, and even for me was inspiring. Every one of the principiantes touched my heart. Jen Marlay
I am amazed at the behaviour of the children and how quickly and eagerly they learned.On the last night the lights failed but the children continued to work in the dark. They are incredible. Elizabeth
We enjoyed the teaching work very much even though we are not teachers by profession. I also enjoyed the work of going to the mothers’ homes with Jhovana to teach hygiene and first aid.
I enjoyed teaching the mothers. They were all very grateful and understood how important it was to learn English as well as other skills. I found it very interesting teaching both children and their mothers as I got to know the families more. Steve Sharpe
It was great to teach in such a beautiful environment. I especially liked it that I could combine teaching with developing the curriculum.
The classes were very rewarding. The children were very enthusiastic and keen to learn English. Nilton was very patient in assisting our needs and guiding the children when required. He really provided a lot of support and guidance. Paul
Here's just some of the feedback from the many volunteers we've been lucky enough to work with over the last decade. Some people reflect on the experience of their time with us and others on their work with our children and families. Some volunteers share their thoughts on why you might want to come and join us, and they even offer a few handy hints to help you on your way:
Wow, an experience not to be missed….. I just loved the trips, you are a wonderful tour guide [Eva]. What a privilege to have seen parts of Peru that other tourists never go to. Rosalyn Davies
Congratulations to the wonderful, dedicated teachers Elizabeth, Antonio and Nilton.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. Elizabeth Lephart
Even though the landscape was beautiful, the reason why I really appreciated my experience in the field was because I was able to see where these children live and how little they have. Seeing their houses really made an impact on me, because 6 or 7 people would live in a these tiny houses with only one light bulb. It was very humbling, but also inspiring. Jen Marlay
…that was great, to experience the life of the people here. We are grateful for the love and friendship that all of them gave us. Sanna De Graaff
I have had many experiences here which I will never forget. The work here is very important and help is always needed. Keep up the good work. Steve Sharpe
Peru Luz de Esperanza is
a very special organisation: unforgettably welcoming Lotte Bontje
I loved the experience of working with you the family, the kids and mothers. It was great to be able to learn about the lives of people in this area of Peru.
…a good place to volunteer and also a good place to get to know other volunteers from other places in the world. Ida Neal
