HOOP – Helping Overcome Obstacles Peru

Friday, August 31st, 2012

While traveling through Peru, I stumbled upon a volunteer organization in Arequipa. I had always been looking for opportunities to give back while using my skills. The enthusiastic staff happily invited me to document a day in the life of the volunteers at the Flora Tristan English School. These volunteers are doing awesome things for these children and their families who don’t have very much. It was humbling to see how much time and effort has already gone into the school and the all the projects they have lined up for the future.

If you ever find yourself traveling through Peru (say, on the way to Machu Picchu?), and have time to volunteer, take a look at www.HoopPeru.org and see what opportunities they have to offer you!
