Community Projects We Support in South America

Making a positive impact.

We believe tourism should make a positive impact in the communities and landscapes where we work. Andean Trails is proactive in supporting several NGOs and charities based in the UK and in our destination countries.

We donate a percentage of our profits to the following social and community projects. Each year we give a total of approximately USD 6000 to community projects in Peru: Huchuy Yachaq; Amantani; and ECOAN.

We are also members of Galapagos Conservation Trust, John Muir Trust, Rainforest Concern, the LATA Foundation and Tourism Concern and encourage people to Pack For A Purpose.

Several of the projects actively encourage volunteers, so if you would like to donate or fancy contributing time as a volunteer then contact the office for how best to organise this.


Community projects supported by Andean Trails:-


  Huchuy Yachaq

Huchuy Yachaq Project:  A community project in a Cusco neighbourhood to improve education, skills and the quality of life of poor children, where you can volunteer or Pack for a Purpose (see below).

   Pack For A Purpose

Pack For A Purpose   We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
