Our philosophy begins by treating our porters well, as indicated in the special article dedicated to them and which you can see in the Inca Trail option link Porters’ welfare.
We have a natural commitment to sharing part of our profits with those who have less, by way of social activities carried out once a year for the time being. We hope to add more events in the coming years.
Our social activity includes a recreation day for all the girls, boys, teenagers, young people and family members as well as giving out gifts and school supplies too.
Our vision is to definitely provide more help to these towns such as building community halls, schools, medical posts as well as implementing technology through computer centers. These tasks will be completed later by way of our profits, provided God allows it.
Our latest activity was carried out at the Paru Paru Community, located 2 hours from the city of Cusco.
Interestingly enough, this village is behind the archaeological center of Pisaq and despite it’s great scenic attraction it has been practically forgotten by the government.
Though most of them are farmers, they opt to work as porters for the considerable source of income. Some of them work with us at InfoCusco and we are pleased to see how much they enjoy this activity. You will be able to check this out during your journey along the Inca Trail.
Our next visit will be to the UMANA community, located in the province of Paucartambo. Since this is a remote community, our social activity will take around 2 days and 1 night.
