How this holiday helpsTaking this trek not only helps local people, but you get an amazing experience walking the Andes yet come 'home' each night to high quality lodges with great food.
The trek is run by a company committed to helping their local communities. They work through a charity arm known as Yanapana a not-for-profit Civil Association. Their purpose is to reduce the condition of extreme poverty in the Andean Highlands, and improve the quality of life through sustainable community development.
Most of the projects are related to education and health for those families and individuals in poverty so they have helped schools and clinics, but they also help with income-generating projects such as organic coffee production, women making handmade textile, provision of clothing in the cold periods and so on.
