Skills

I have medical skills but for my volunteering I would like more experience with gardening, or construction, or cooking healthy foods preferable vegetarian and I am very motivated to learn to speak Spanish.

Past Volunteering Experience

I have done 4 medical missions - 3 in Haiti and 1 in Peru - and I went on a stove making mission with stone masons to Gatemala. Most of my volunteering has been short term but with my motivation to learn Spanish I think I need to stay for a few months.
