FROM VOLUNTEERS TO FAMILY

Volunteers are a huge factor in Reciprocity's work with the shanty town communities. As we are a small nonprofit, we really value the time and effort our volunteers put into joining us on Volunteer Days so that we can successfully implement our social projects. We want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteers that have become part of the Reciprocity Family!


Hear from a few of our volunteers to find out what they like best about volunteering with us:
"Volunteering with Reciprocity has been amazing! Not only have I got to meet some wonderful people (both in the community and fellow volunteers), I've seen the hard work that this NGO does and the benefits to the community. 😊  Can't wait for the next volunteer day!" - Mary, Ireland 
"Para mí servir en los voluntariados de Reciprocity a sido una de las mejores experiencias que haya vivido. El sólo hecho de ayudar al mas necesitado resulta siendo una bendición absolutamente gratificante, puesto que el único pago que uno recibe es la eterna sonrisa de quién te lo agradece, y claro un abrazo también, volviéndose este el mejor regalo que recibimos los que ayudamos desinteresadamente, porque los que ayudan de corazón y sin esperar recibir algo a cambio estoy seguro de que la vida les devuelve con creces la generosidad." - Jean Pierre, Peru

I'm proud to be part of a team that wants to help these communities grow, and provide them with a better future." - Mark, United Kingdom 
"It was a privelege to work with one of the marginal settlements of Lima and see their community values. These people can rebuild Peru." - John, United Kingdom 
 "La mejor experiencia en mi vida!! No podemos hacer grandes cosas, pero si cosas pequeñas con un gran amor! Y es aquí en “Reciprocity”donde lo puedes hacer. Desde el primer momento sientes que algo puedes aportar, qué hay mucho por hacer y tienes la suerte de poder estar viviéndolos. La experiencia es increíble y satisfactoria al ayudar a los que más lo necesitan. Lo volvería a repetir mil veces!!!" - Cynthia, Peru
"Volunteering with Reciprocity has changed my life. Initially I was looking to fill an empty weekend while working in Lima. But, after spending a weekend roofing a day care center and painting wood with preservative, the sense of achievement I felt was like nothing I’d felt before. Witnessing the generosity given by families who don’t ask for help and yet struggle to get by everyday, truly makes you reflect on just how you live your life yourself. Giving your time and energy to help these families is one of the most rewarding things you could ever do." - Steve, United Kingdom
