SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS

Charity

Southern Peru Explorers is involved in other organizations and additional projects to give as much of what we can back to our local, remote Andean communities. But it starts with you! By booking onto one of our treks or tours you are directly affecting positive change for the Peruvian people. We are just the middle man, we need your help to make sure we can continue to do all we can. This includes prioritizing local farmers over supermarkets, it includes employing our porters from local communities to ensure fair pay for fair work. It includes visiting schools to bring equipment which would otherwise not be able to be obtained. It also includes bringing health care which is in dire need to places we travel through such as Tineky, Paucartambo and Cami Canch.

See the sections below to see just how we deliver this care to our community and how we provide charity for the people who really make your trip possible.

Educational Project

Southern Peru Explorers deliver necessary equipment such as, schooling books, note pads and stationary to remote schools located in the areas within which we travel on our treks and tours. We visit schools to cook for the children and teach about food nutrition. Many of the children that benefit from this aid are that of our Porters, they are not only apart of our Southern Peru Explorers family but our Peruvian one as such we feel the responsibility to nurture and provide opportunities from the upcoming youth of this country. The more you enjoy our experiences the more we can share with them.In future with your support and our growth we hope to invest in and become a patron for the growth of education within the rural Andean communities; building school houses and resources that will play host to Peru’s next generation.

Health Caring Community

We bring heath care to the remote towns such as Tineky, Paucartambo and Cami Canch. Providing the members of the community with health care professionals to not only give check ups but advise and educate the communities. 

Southern Peru explorers also funds goody bags which include all they need to sustain on going health care. Such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, sanitary products etc

We also bring ingredients on mass to share throughout the communities so they are sustained nutritionally for a long period of time.

Our Porters

We intentionally seek to employ and fairly pay people from Andean communities, who are on the outskirts of Peru’s society and economic system. We employer hundreads of porters that are not only Peruvian but from the towns that need the most support. Our friendly porters are the amazing people who carry your equipment on trek.This is a labor intensive job and as such we go above and beyond to make sure our porters are happy and healthy. We, unlike other companies, cap the weight they are allowed to carry to prevent over excursion and injury. They are kitted out, to our expense, with appropriate shoes and clothing to make the journey easier. They are feed the same amazing food that our guests are and if at the end of our trip there is any food left the porters are more than welcome to bring it back to their families ; no food waste and helping our communities out! At the end of the day when they take that load of their back they can be happy in the knowledge that we pay them 23% more than other companies.
