Neel Gupta, 27, USA
My name is Neel Gupta. I recently left my job to do some soul searching. I was initially intrigued by Perú given its vast culture, various microclimates and wonderful trekking. To be honest, I was completely unfamiliar with Seeds of Hope until about a month and a half into the travels: I felt incomplete and needed some purpose besides taking in experience after another like the classic traveller. A quick google search and 48 grateful hours later I was in Huaraz being introduced to the other volunteers - it was destiny.
"I felt incomplete and needed some purpose besides taking in experience after another like the classic traveller."
It’s unfortunate that as soon as I began to settle in (3 weeks), it was time to depart. Seeds now holds a special place in my heart. I’m thrilled to stay in contact with the kids to watch and help them prosper. I will miss them dearly but will undoubtedly be back soon.
