This particular service program offers students the opportunity to participate in several different service initiatives including teaching and working on improvements in one of Lima's many shanty towns. The experience will provide students with a view of the two sides of Lima and give them a new perspective on the obstacles that are preventing development in these communities, while allowing them to practice implementing solutions to these challenges first hand.
