Why Volunteer with Makikita Quykuway?

volunteers

Makikita Quykuway Volunteer Program is unique in that it is run by social services professionals with specialized training and significant experience working in underserved communities. Since our workers have professional degrees, staff members are not financially dependent upon the volunteer fees and contribution – they work with the organization because they love it.


Secondly, one of our organization’s fundamental values is respect. 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.



Finally, Makikita Quykuway Volunteer Program is a fairly new and growing organization. As such, we highly value volunteers’ feedback. In this way, we expand our organization’s services and improve future volunteers’ experiences. At the end of every volunteer’s stay in Huancayo, the volunteer completes an evaluation. We then implement the given suggestions, helping us to improve our organization as a whole.
