Memories Catherine

In September I flew to Arequipa with no idea what to expect. I was greeted by Miriam and she showed me around the city, took me to lunch and my first day at Torre Fuerte. The girls in Torre Fuerte were welcoming and loving immediately. As soon as I arrived I felt comfortable around them. My favorite part about working with the girls was learning all their different personalities. Some girls were very talkative and expressive while other girls were shy and took some time warming up. Each girl in Torre Fuerte was loving and excited for the volunteers. Everyday we played games, crafts, reading, computer help and even some tutoring. My last days in Torre Fuerte were very difficult because I felt so close to the girls. They were so positive when saying their goodbyes and wishing me support. Even two months later I still think of everyone in Torre Fuerte and when I can return.

Volunteering at Casa Hogar is an amazing experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to practice their Spanish and make lifelong friends.
