“During spring 2015 I interned with Corazon de Dahlia through a class I took at Binghamton University. After my internship ended I felt connected with the company’s mission and chose to continue supporting as a volunteer. Through speaking with Dahlia I was able to see the genuine passion about helping the children in Peru. I really hope that one day I can have the opportunity to visit the development center in Saylla.”
