WHEN YOU TRAVEL WITH ANDEAN ROOTS PERU, PART OF THE COST OF YOUR TRAVEL WILL BE DESTINED TO DIRECTLY CONTRIBUTE THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES, THROUGH “ANDEAN ROOTS FUNDATION”.

In light of the communities where we were born and that saw us grow, laugh, and learn the wisdom of the Andes, most importantly the meaning of Ayni or “sacred reciprocity”, we appreciate our origins here and through our work we seek to support the communities that have supported us.

Andean Roots Peru is dedicated to promoting and organizing community projects within the Cusco region. Although tourism plays an important role in Peru´s economy and provides employment for many people, small communities are often denied the direct financial support of large scale commercial tourism.

For many years these villages have been forgotten by our Peruvian government, especially those villages located in the middle of the mountains which do not even have access to cars and people can only arrive by horses. We consider that our region Cusco receives more than a Million tourist per year which would make you think that Cusco is the richest region BUT it’s not. Considered as one of the poorest region in Peru due to the money collected from tourists being sent to Lima.

Our first objectives within the family of Andean Roots through organizing community projects will include the distribution of educational materials for children, given that school systems in smaller communities can always use any extra support for the education of the youth. Another objective is to distribute warm clothing to the distant communities, especially those in high altitudes where winter temperatures can reach -15°C (5°F).

The mission this foundation realizes is to assist the children of our communities of school age through providing the school materials and their uniforms, at the same time we share the happiness of Christmas with the children in our communities.

Purchase of School Supplies:

Every March the foundation heads for a specific community with the purpose of supporting an average of 30 – 40 children. We buy them the corresponding school supplies, “according to what the school requires”.

Uniforms for Our Children

Children of those communities lack of resources for the acquisition of new scholar uniforms, so very frequently the uniforms are used for more tan 2 years , likewise they lack of shoes for the school and they use sandals ”Ojotas”, in the same way they have no book bags, among others.

Thanks to your reservations the Andean Roots Foundation assist to our children every beginning of school year with the purchase of uniforms that includes:

  • Shoes
  • Trousers
  • Jerseys
  • Shirts
  • Sweaters
  • Backpacks

Christmas with the Andean Children of Peru

All the children anxiously await the arrival of Christmas:

Every Christmas the Andean Roots family leads to the high land communities to share happy moments with these children. Making them smile in a day where we share a special Christmas breakfast, plays, dances, presents for each of our children.
