Hi, my name is Ivone Rey, I am an environmental engineer from Colombia. I have been living in Canada for 6 years and I am going as a volunteer in Peru this summer. I will be participating in Sector market analysis for inclusive economic development for women and youth in Peru.

I am looking forward for an opportunity to grow up my experience in sustainable development. The internship in Peru will provide me with practical skills in the related fields of social development promotion and strengthening the capabilities of the less privileged. I am interested in strengthening the ability to identify critical features of a given context. While working with and, most importantly, for the community, I will broaden my knowledge in areas of inequality, participation and social planning.
