Adventures that change lives
“Solidarity trips” is a program that aims to help the most remote poor populations through tourism, generating a beneficial exchange between travelers and the local population. This project is implemented thanks to the strategic alliance between Expand Peru (Humanitarian aid organization) and Peru Diverse (travel agency), two institutions of a different but complementary nature.
WHAT IS A SOLIDARITY TRIP?
- IT IS A SCHEDULED tour through places of tourist interest that aims to let participants know and enjoy, as well as generate help to the populations that are visited.
- ITINERARY: These trips take place through pre-established itineraries, on very specific and previously coordinated dates, all have limited spaces (25 people maximum per trip).
WHO IS BENEFITED BY OUR SOLIDARITY TRIPS?
LOCAL PEOPLE: Children, adults and the elderly. Villages through which our itineraries are carried out, places that because of their remoteness have been abandoned and marginalized.
PARTICIPANTS OF THE SOLIDARITY TRIPS: They benefit through the experience of helping, generating for themselves the satisfaction of being useful, while reinforcing their values.
HOW DO WE GENERATE HELP?
- During the tours we make use of the services (accommodation, food, muleteers, guides, cooks, etc.) provided by local populations, generating work and a direct economic income.
- In each trip, immediate assistance activities have been planned to solve very specific problems in which «solidarity travelers» directly participate, such as: Installation of water or electricity services, painting and repair of homes or schools, cleaning of villages and environmental care work, among many others.
- Donations of clothing, food, educational material, medicines are also scheduled, according to the needs of the populations.
- But the most beautiful activities that are carried out are the “Sharing/ Share”, meetings to enjoy special moments (Dynamics, games, dances, food and drinks) with children, adults or elderly people in the villages.
