Valeria Cabrera

I am a fourth-year student from the University of Waterloo, Canada, who enthusiastically accepted an 8 month volunteer position in Ica, Peru. Studying International Development (INDEV) with an Environment, Resources and Sustainability (ERS) minor, I find myself successfully matched to my capabilities and interests within my assigned Peruvian NGO: Corporativo Horizonte. My position as an Environmental Research and Systematization Officer will grant me the opportunity, and further equip me with the tools, to contribute to the NGO’s mission: the promotion of environmental conservation, restoration and sustainability to an audience that is predominantly, but not limited to, primary and secondary school students.
