“Peru and Windaid community gave me a sense of belonging I have never felt before or since. I have met the most beautiful people and had some of the most amazing adventures of my life there. Evening discussions with friends I met there made me realise that there are people out there who share my dream of saving the world, even if it means taking small actions, which will add up eventually to something great. Ever since I left, there is nothing I would like to do more but to go back. If I would to use just a few words to describe my time with Windaid I would use: happiness, joy, freedom, belonging, adventure, passion, safety…. Friendship.”

“Before arriving to Trujillo, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was getting myself into but by the time I left, I was positive that volunteering with WindAid was the best decision I’ve ever made. Michael and the team made it so easy to relax and blend with the local environment. My favorite part of the program was exploring the exotic places of Peru with other volunteers from around the globe. I’ll never forget the vibrant nights in Lima, the interesting days in Trujillo and the cheerful kids in every village. When we went to install the wind turbine, the enjoyment that we felt from interacting with the locals is beyond words. Also the learning experience offered through WindAid is really dynamic, from sharing ideas to making a visible impact, it’s like the ultimate classroom. Thank you guys so much for making this amazing experience possible !” – Wind Energy at Texas Tech University
