Olivia Hudson : Australia – Civil Engineering at RMIT University 

“The program greatly exceeded my expectations, as I learned so much not only to do with engineering but personally as well. I’ve been inspired to now be vegetarian and also grown in confidence from this program.

My amazing experience has to be attributed to all the employees and volunteers at WindAid from mama Rosa, who always made sure we had a delicious meal to come home to at the end of the day, to Senor Abel making sure we always got to and from work as well as to all the guys in the workshop sharing all their knowledge and experience with the upmost patience and open mindness to new things.

I greatly respect their attitude and dreams for innovation in the future. ”

“Volunteering with WindAid is a must do for everyone no matter what you are interested in or what age. I learnt so much that I could never have experienced anywhere else. WindAid combines sustainable wind energy, volunteering, helping those less fortunate, practical workshop skills, travel and heaps and heaps of fun! The people at WindAid and the communities are fantastic and easy to communicate with, even with the language barrier.”

“Being a part of the install is still one of our favorite parts of the trip. It allowed us to really interact with the community that will benefit from the turbine and show us how special WindAid’s work is in Peru and what our partnership with them will mean.”
