Learning

Learning comes in many forms.  Lectures by Nestor Vergara, Jerry Acosta, Maria Lopez and Father Jeff Klaiber taught us much about living conditions at the edge of Lima, life in Peru during the time of terrorism and the Catholic Church in Latin America.  Workshops with Pedro Farias, Alicia Taipe Tello, Eliana Carrasco and Senora Gregoria gave us opportunities to learn about traditional dance, medicinal herbs, jewelry making and urban gardening.  Classes with Moises Arces Zavala, Ana Bracamonte and Biviana Goto Sanchez helped the students improve their command of Castellano, the term used for Spanish here in Peru, to better communicate with their host families and prepare for their six-week service assignments.  And with these final lectures, workshops, classes and time spent with their Lima host families, the study program came to a close.

  1. This program is so extremely well thought-out and managed! I’m amazed by all that the students have experienced and learned and so appreciate the huge amount of work it takes to make that happen.
