Reviews for Peruvian Hearts

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with a variety of non-profits in the past, but I don't think I had ever been more accommodated with than Peruvian Hearts. From the minute we arrived at the airport, they had taken care of us the entire way. They made sure the type of service we provided for their community was relevant to their specific needs. Although we could have came more prepared with ideas on service activities, they did their best to make sure our time was well spent and that we would be making an impact. I was so proud to have been given the opportunity to work with them and do hope to find ways to support them in the future!

Volunteering for this non profit has been one of the most memorable experiences in my life thus far. It thought me to see life from a different perspective and inspired me to continue pursuing my goals. Although the girls who are from part of Peruvian Hearts have limited resources, they still have huge dreams and that is highly admirable.

Our student group volunteered with this organization this past March and it was a wonderful experience overall. The onsite staff were so knowledgeable, accommodating and very kind. And the experience with the program participants and our students was priceless! Thank you Peruvian Hearts!!

I am blessed to witness all the hard work put into this organization. I was really amazed and touched with the Peruvian program, how it started, and most of all having to meet all the girls that was part of the program and seeing how committed they are blew my mind away. I have never been so touched and felt welcomed in my life. The program is amazing and I hope to go back again and see their progress.

Peruvian Hearts gave us a warm welcome right upon arrival. They were extremely accommodating and truly gave us an experience of a lifetime regarding the social justice issues of female youth empowerment, poverty, and education. We had a chance to interact with the community and built friendships along the way. I highly recommend the non-profit for those who are looking for a chance to immerse yourself in the culture and the community.

Peruvian Hearts took care of us so well. We had a great service-learning trip and made lasting relationships with the girls and the community. If you're looking to really immerse yourself in a community while doing volunteer work, I highly recommend Peruvian Hearts.

I have worked with Danny Dodson and Peruvian hearts for 2 years and I plan on returning to Cusco, Peru to be part of this amazing organization for years to come. I'm sure all non profits have good motives at their cores but Peruvian Hearts is a cause I can firmly stand behind! Keep up the great work Peruvian Hearts!

Peruvian Hearts is exceptional. A quickly growing organization, they show inspiring commitment to empowering young women in Peru. They address economic and gender inequalities in such a full and holistic manner, by providing driven young women with education, mentorship, food, shelter and opportunities. The girls they work with are excelling and will undoubtedly go on to change the world. Knowing that every dollar of Peruvian Hearts goes straight to such a tremendous cause, I can't recommend this non-profit strongly enough.

I've been interning with Peruvian Hearts for three months now and am greatly impressed by the heart, soul and hard work that goes into this organization and its mission. I've learned invaluable lessons about running a successful non-profit, the most important being a personal commitment to making a real and lasting impact. Peruvian Hearts doesn't give handouts, they give girls a chance to pull themselves out of poverty and determine their own futures.
PH has a great model and I believe they have the potential to grow rapidly in the coming months and years, expanding their ability to transform individual lives into an empowered, fulfilled generation.

Peruvian Hearts is a remarkable organization that provides love, food, shelter, education, and role models for hundreds of children in Peru. Peruvian Hearts provides a safe, joyful and warm home for girls at the orphanage in Anta, Peru. It is such a delight to visit and see these motivated, smart, well balanced girls flourish in this nurturing environment. The older girls are not taking college entrance exams that they never dreamed possible a few years ago. These girls are now on track to become role models and leaders for other Peruvian children.

The breakfast and lunch programs that Peruvian Hearts provides at other schools in the Cuzco area have enabled children to thrive now that they have the nourishment to concentrate and study. Peruvian Hearts is an inspiration to me and a lesson in how a focused loving program can make an extraordinary difference in so many young people’s lives. I am honored and privileged to be a part of this outstanding organization.
