Volunteering in Peru with Rustic

Everyone at Rustic Volunteer team was always extremely helpful and knowledgeable about any questions or concerns I had. The Spanish classes were very interactive and the teacher had a great repose with all the students. He did a superior job of teaching! The living conditions were also very good, with excellent meals and always more than enough food. The family at the family stay was wonderful!The meals were prepared with care. I'm a vegetarian and was very satisfied with all my meals. They were very accommodating to my needs. I really enjoyed my volunteer experience at the shelter. I thought I was going to work with young children and this really was a new experience. It wasn't what I expected but it turned out to be great. My flight was about one hour late arriving in Cusco and no one met me at the airport. I had to take a taxi and I was overcharged but did not realize it at the time. Perhaps let others know what they would pay a taxi if the pickup does not occur. Overall, everything was great, therefore I recommend Rustic Volunteers programs in Peru to all.

An awesome Kenyan experience

This my second time volunteering through Rustic Volunteer Travel. Rustic allowed me to cater my project to my skills and training in capacity building, health management, strategic planning. I was able to work with the coordinator on impactful development projects in Kenya (Kibera Slums, Ngong-Living Positive Kenya, and Watama-Gede Hospital). The projects themselves were very successful and were able to make direct impact with the communities. Areas of improvement can be the logistical planning; however the Country Coordinator, Jimmy Wambua, is new and has a great passion for making a quality difference. I think with more support and as he gets more experience and ground support as well as financial support from the US organization, he will be able to strengthen the program to be more effective. In overall, the experience was challenging and yet rewarding simultaneously. I was highly impressed with the Kibera Slums projects as the CBO's are highly motivated and dedicated to their community. They just need a little support in training and encouragement. I also enjoyed my experience in Ngong and working with Mary. Mary was a fantastic support and has dedicated her life to the work helping women with HIV and AIDs reassimilate into their communities through sustainable economic and healthcare opportunities. Will always cherish this experience!
