Every year Heart-Links takes a small group of Canadians to northern Peru for an unforgettable three-week experience in solidarity.
Meet our partners and friends in Zaña, Chiclayo and Cajamarca. Spend quality time in each location with one of the development projects Heart-Links is involved with and exchange views and experiences with our partners and the people those projects support.
Applicants must be available for three planning meetings before the trip.
