Dora Ip : Canada – Technical Sales Engineer at Electrometals

“I could not have asked for a more phenomenal and freeing experience than what I had accomplished with WindAid. I met so many amazing and interesting people, built up my Spanish skills, got to include an insanely braggable gem of a life-changing experience to my personal CV of adventures, and give the sincerest and most-deserving Peruvian community the gift of energy. Not to mention I got to eat the juiciest freshest fruits I’ve ever tasted in my life!! I encourage you with all my heart to join WindAid, be a part of this amazing organization and allow yourself to say you did something incredible for yourself and many many others.” – Chemical Engineering (Environmental Opt) in the University of British Columbia

“Trabajar con el Instituto WindAid por tres meses fue una experiencia enriquecedora tanto en el ámbito profesional como personal. Como ingeniero electronico tuve la oportunidad de aplicar los conocimientos adquiridos en la universidad para resolver problemas y crear soluciones en diferentes situaciones. También aprendí cómo trabajar cuando las condiciones son adversas y hay pocos recursos. Personalmente, fue una gran experiencia poder ayudar a poblaciones sin recursos a iniciarlos en la corriente del desarrollo sostenible, aportando energía y educación, las cuales son las bases por las que el Instituto WindAid se rige.”
