This respect is directed not only towards the troubled communities in which we serve but is also bestowed on all members of our organization. Consequently, our volunteer workers are treated with dignity and kindness. Our volunteers’ skills are a valuable asset in improving the lives of poor Peruvians. Regardless of the location of the given volunteer’s housing or work, Makikita staff remain in daily contact with them, ensuring the volunteer’s health, safety, and happiness for the duration of their stay.
Thirdly, Makikita Quykuway Volunteer Program emphasizes the importance of completing a project from start to finish. Owning a project is meaningful and inspirational. Therefore, Makikita offers project-based volunteer assignments whenever possible.
