Latest Reviews

Colegio Honofre Benavides Tomepampa reviewed by Jess Clark
"Making the decision to volunteer in Tomepampa was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was really nervous at first, as the location was quite remote and I wasn't sure my level of Spanish was quite ready for it. However, I shouldn't have been worried. The rural location of Tomepampa is precisely what gives it it's beauty and charm; you can't help but feel happy and peaceful when you are surrounded by such amazing scenery! The locals welcomed us warmly from day 1, frequently checking on us to make sure we were OK, and telling us all about the area. I found the project challenging, as keeping the attention of many excited Peruvian children a challenge, but their hearts are big and welcoming, so you can't help but love them. My Spanish improved an incredible amount t over this time, and the snapshot of their lives that I experienced gave me a taste of what life for these people is really like. I strongly encourage you to consider volunteering in Tomepampa, not just to see the sights or improve your language, but because doing so will completely immerse you in Peru and you will feel completely at home in this beautiful country."

Responsible volunteering with a purpose reviewed by Tamara Lowe
"Be warned, because once you volunteer for HOOP you may never want to leave. I volunteered with HOOP for two months, then subsequently worked with them full-time for 10 months, and remain a board member as I wanted to continue supporting HOOP even after leaving Peru to take up a position with the UN in Ghana.

The projects run by HOOP in the shanty towns outside of Arequipa make a huge difference to local communities through the provision of education, health care and psychological support. Volunteers can either help implement projects in the community, or provide support in the office based in central Arequipa.

So if you want to do meaningful and responsible volunteering in one of the world's most stunning cities, then HOOP is the perfect NGO for you."
