Give & Grow – Peru 2016 – Alumni

Your Give & Grow Invitation

Embark on a journey to the mystical land of the Incas and allow the rich cultural history of Peru overwhelm and expand your senses.

Contribution – The heart of this trip is about giving back, and growing as a person. As such, we will engage in a handful of experiences where you’ll be exposed to the gift of giving to orphans who need to know they matter, and personal growth, because you do. Come with an open heart

Personal Growth – The entire Give & Grow trip will be sprinkled with conversations and philosophies designed to help you process the experience and grow as a person. We’ll stay the last 2 nights in a breath-taking Sacred Valley retreat center, nestled high upon the Peruvian Andes, where you’ll be able to explore your inner world further through self-reflection, so you can uncover your personal and unique gift.

A Twist of Adventure – During the 3-day private-guided hiking trip through the Sacred Valley, you’ll be escorted on an adventure through the breathtakingly mystical and natural settings in the search of what real connection is all about. You’ll also spend time exploring the Inca walls and visit several legendary landmarks, all while getting introduced and immersed into the ancient and enticing culture of Peru.

Local Culture – Besides the hike, where you’ll get in touch with Andean people, learn about their traditions and life-style, and uncover what real connection is all about, you’ll also spend time exploring the Inca walls and visit several legendary landmarks, all while getting introduced and immersed into the ancient and enticing culture of Peru.

Contribution & Personal Growth with a Twist of Adventure.

It is often suggested that when you give you receive ten fold. I am not sure if this in entirely true but I do believe it in general terms. I do however believe when you give to get, this life lesson does not apply. That said, I know how much my own experience of working with orphans in Sri Lanka years ago impacted my life and how it has inspired me along my journey of creating this program.

This Give & Grow trip to Peru has the ability to change your entire perspective on life, and we are approaching this experience accordingly. We want to strike a balance between getting to see, feel and experience this amazing country, but at the same time take some space to allow the Give & Grow experience to land.

Give & Grow, now in it’s fourth year, has touched the lives of many souls in need, from all corners of the globe (both in orphanages and projects that we visit, and with the retreat participants that embark upon this journey). In the past four years, Give & Grow has visited Guatemala, Peru, and India, and we’re proud to officially announce that we’re heading back to Cusco to visit the new location of the orphanage we’re having a hand in building, in order to improve the living space (and lives) of the children who live there.

Give & Grow combines our passion to GIVE with our need to GROW, and injects a sense of adventure that’s often missing in our lives.

Give & Grow is NOT a traditional volunteer project but rather a carefully crafted mentoring experience that holds the potential to change us.
