TrekPeru prides itself in helping the underprivileged community schools in the highlands of Peru such as Pisac, Qosqoayllu, Taray, Sillacancha, and Harin where we have spent six years renovating the schools, garden care, building new facilities, supplying school materials, photo copy machines, and computers for the children. Every year it is our mission to pick a different community school to help… Most of all we share Christmas with these humble communities by taking them a gift, panettone (sweet bread), hot chocolate and share joy and laughter with them. It feels heavenly to open up our hearts to these lovely people especially to see the beautiful children smile.
We have Students that come from abroad to share their time with our communities in Peru.
You can volunteer in conjunction with a trek or tour in Peru with us.

March 2016 - Taray Kindergarten School in Pisac, Chicon School in Urubamba and Cachicatta Kindgarten School in Ollantaytambo
Our staff at Trekperu and our volunteers worked weekly at these schools by making renovations, painting the schools, fixing the gardens, floors and more. We have also done reforestation planting trees. We hired workers to build a sewage system for the schools. Besides the volunteers supplied the necessary school supplies. They also had time to play with the children and share many laughs. Everyone intermingled together and had a blast. Trekperu and the the children are grateful for their support and generosity.
December 2015 Patacancha Porter Community (for the Inca Trail)
Trekperu visited the small community of Patacancha for a visit of the homes of our porters that work on the Inca Trail with us. We took toys for the children, gifts for the families and sweet bread for everyone. The beautiful people in these communities gathered together to share smiles and a joyous time. They were very happy and made us feel welcomed. We were together like a family feeling the warmth in their hearts.
Trekperu and staff are grateful to have brought a very Merry Christmas to this community.
June 2015 Cachicatta Church
Trekperu and Southwind Adventures from Colorado, USA, joined together in the venture of restoring a colonial church in the village of Cachicatta. We cleaned, fixed the benches, painted and refurbished the wood to make this colonail church presentable once again in honor of the festival celebrated in July 15 for the famous Virgen del Carmen. The dancers, the Negrillos group, who dance their popular Andean dances during the festival, also took time to assist us with the renovations of the church.
March 2014 - Sillacancha School
(close to Huayllabamba in the Sacred Valley). With the help of our wonderful volunteers from the West Island School in Canada we helped dreams come true for the children and community. With much enthusiasm the volunteers painted the classrooms and the entire school, made repairs to the roofs, floors, kitchen, bathrooms and the garden. While doing all of these repairs the volunteers still had time to visit Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. They worked and interacted with the students by playing games, playing soccer and volley ball. Everyone had a grand time. Thank you for your help and hard work.
