This summer, I will join a select group of university students from across the country to reach out to underdeveloped communities in Peru as a participant in the Clinical Medicine volunteer program with VivePerú, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting cultural understanding and implementing innovative and self-sustainable programs in the areas of health, education, social work and engineering.

The VivePerú medical program will give me the opportunity to be exposed to a new culture, be involved with a different healthcare system, improve my Spanish, and gain clinical experience. This experience is very important to me because I am currently working towards my Nursing Degree at ASU. I am double majoring in Global Health and Pre-Nursing. My goal is to apply to an accelerated nursing program after graduation in which I will earn my Bachelor of Science in Nursing and start working as a midwife. My plan is to use my experience in Peru as the foundation of my honor’s thesis which I will begin in the fall.

Through Vive Peru’s volunteer programs, much-needed aid is provided to communities living in substandard conditions through medical and health education campaigns, English workshops, music enrichment programs, and internet installation projects. Through these projects, we are able to improve the quality of life for Peruvian children and families. I will be going to Otuzco, Peru, which is a city located in the Andes Mountains at an elevation over 8,000 feet. I will be working in their local clinic Monday through Friday for 10 weeks this summer and living with a local family.

My goal is to raise $5000 by the end of April, to help cover the costs associated with the volunteer program. This includes the program fee, flights, vaccinations, travel insurance, and trip to Machu Picchu. If you are interesting in helping me reach my goal, I would greatly appreciate your support.

Thank you in advance for your support. Please email me if you have any questions about the VivePerú program. I can be reached at hagunter@asu.edu
