Discover Corps Peru was an incredible, eye-opening experience. Volunteering alongside local communities, meeting fascinating people and exploring Machu Picchu made were just a few of the highlights during my stay. Would recommend this to anyone interested in traveling deeper and giving back in a meaningful way.
