What an amazing and fullfilling experience, aided by the wonderfull minds behind and fuelling this brilliant charity.Welcomed by a warm heart and large smile, with good motives and visions for a worth while cause Juliana the head of the project welcomed me into Makikita. Makikita offers a range of dirrections and sectors you can work in. I spent my time primarily working in an orphanage where I was teaching and enriching the childrens lifes with recreational activities, arts and crafts. I had structured lessons in the afternoons, and could visit the orphanage and street children projects when ever I wanted, bringing self initiated work, ideas ect. This charity really did give me the opportunities to intergrate and sample in a honest and raw manner these childrens and peoples lifes, aswell as teach and offer some skills. This experienced enriched even more by the wonderful people involved. I had the honoured opportunity of meeting some wonderful families,individuals, children and other volunteers. Also I got to sample and see parts of Peru, by travelling at weekends, This was such a memorable experience for me, Peru is a breathtakingly beautiful country full of wonderfully warm individuals. I hope to return to Makikitta.
