SOCIALLY & CONCIUOS

We handpick the most sustainable and immersive excursions all over Peru, more sustainability and concern for social and environmental issues worldwide.

CHARITY

Southern Peru Explorers is involved in other organizations and local projects, so that we can give back to our local, remote Andean communities. This  starts with you booking one of our treks or tours. When you book with us, you are directly affecting positive change for the local Peruvian people. We  need your help to make sure we can continue to do all we can to support our local communities!

Some of our efforts include prioritizing local farmers over supermarkets, and employing our porters from local communities to ensure fair pay for fair work. We visit  schools to bring equipment and supplies, which would otherwise not be able to be obtained by the school. We also bring health care, which is in dire need, to places we travel through such as Tineky, Paucartambo and Cami Canch. Please 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 PROJET

Southern Peru Explorers delivers necessary equipment such as school books, note pads and stationary to remote schools located in the areas within which we travel to. We visit schools to cook for the children, and teach about nutrition. Many of the children that benefit from this aid are children of our porters. They are not only a part of our Southern Peru Explorers family, but our larger Peruvian one as well. As such, we feel the responsibility to nurture and provide opportunities for the upcoming youth of this Country.

We take pride in offering you these incredible life experiences, so that we can continue to expand our generosity to our local community. In future, with your support and our growth we hope to continue to invest in, and become a patron for the growth of education within the rural Andean communities; building school houses, and providing resources that will benefit Peru’s next generation

OUR PORTERS

We intentionally seek to employ and fairly pay people from the Andean community, who are on the outskirts of Peru’s society and economic system. We employ porters that are not only Peruvian, but from the towns that need the most economic support. Our friendly porters are the amazing people who carry your equipment on treks. 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. We provide appropriate shoes and clothing to make the journey safer and easier for our porters. They are fed the same amazing food that our guests are, and allowed to bring any leftovers to their families at the end of the trip. We love offering this to our porters so there is no food waste, and it helps out our local communities! At the end of each day, when they take that load off their back, they can be happy knowing that we pay them 23% more than other companies.
