WAVES FOR DEVELOPMENT INTERNATIONAL INC
October 8, 2013

My experience in Lobitos with Waves for Development changed my life. Although the mission of the organization is to benefit the community (Lobitos) in which surf travel happens, it truly is a mutually beneficial relationship where I believe the volunteer becomes the most enriched in the end. I returned to the US with an appreciation for developing communities and an intense appreciation for my family. The enthusiasm and values of the people of Lobitos are completely admirable.

WAVES FOR DEVELOPMENT INTERNATIONAL INC
November 5, 2012

I volunteered in Peru in 2011 and this experience has completely changed my life. I feel like I received the most benefit from the experience than anything else. It is a total game-changer to travel to a third world village that seemingly has nothing and yet the people are perfectly content and unbelievably warm and hospitable to all of the volunteers. This experience gave me a new lease on life. I ultimately came home empowered and motivated to stop feeling sorry for myself and to make some changes within myself. Ever since my return. I've volunteered locally for the organization because I believe so passionately in its mission, but more so in the evolution volunteers experience within themselves. I wish everyone could experience my experience and I continue to sing it through the roof. I am forever grateful to this organization and they are hands down one of the best nonprofits.
