Sandro- A success story

One of the biggest frustrations for Peace Corps Volunteers and international aid workers is to ascertain if we are making a difference. You have to trust you are indeed making a difference. Perhaps you will inspire the future President of their country or simply help them reach their own potential and contribute positively in their communities.

The Peruvian Project team is made up of passionate, committed and positive individuals. We trust we can make a difference but from day to day its hard to see if we have indeed made a difference.

We are so proud of all the children and celebrate even the tiniest accomplishments.

Sandro has been attending the program for 9 years. He was first kid to graduate from High School and the first to get accepted to a technical Institute to study to be a Laboratory Technician.
