Supporting Education in Local Communities in Peru

Empowering Young Minds: Our Gift to the Children of Yanacancha

On March 13th, we had the privilege of venturing beyond the trails and into the heart of the Yanacancha community in Cusco.

Our mission this time is not to trek across landscapes, but to equip 30 students at the local school with essential tools for learning: notebooks, pencils, crayons, colors, and more! Peru Treks Supports the Local Education in Peru

Why have we decided to do this?

Here’s the deal.

The heart of our Andean adventures lies not just in the mountains we climb, but in the people who make these journeys possible, such as our porters. We deeply value the communities they come from.

That’s why we choose to actively engage with and support these villages, building strong ties and furthering our commitment to responsible tourism.

Let’s chat about how initiatives like this one support the local community, and why we’re so passionate about supporting the Andean locals.Local Education in Peru

The Importance of Quality School Supplies

A well-stocked pencil case might seem like a simple thing, but for a child in an underprivileged community, it’s a lifeline.

Quality school supplies represent opportunity. They fuel excitement for learning and help create a positive, studious environment where children can focus on abundance in their studies, not a lack of resources.

When a child has a notebook to write in, colors to express their creativity, and pencils to practice their letters, they feel empowered, ready to learn, and valued as students.

The issue for many rural communities in Peru, is that basic school supplies can be out of reach for many families who are struggling to make ends meet.

In turn, this means a significant barrier to education, leaving local children at a disadvantage and limiting their potential.

Our goal with this mission is to help bridge the gap, and ensure that every child in Yanacancha has the tools they need to reach their full potential and break down the obstacles that stand in their way.Local Education in Peru

Our Commitment to Local Education

At Action Peru Treks, we’re passionate about responsible travel that extends beyond the stunning landscapes of the Andes.

We believe in supporting communities that enable these experiences. Investing in local education is one of the most meaningful ways we can contribute to a brighter future for children in Peru, giving back to the people who make our journeys so special.

And what is the most powerful tool to break poverty cycles?


It empowers children with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to create better lives for themselves, their local area, and their families. When children have access to quality education, they have the opportunity to become future leaders, innovators, and agents of positive change in their communities.

 Supporting education initiatives is a way to ensure that the next generation has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Investing in Community

Our dedication to community support doesn’t stop there – oh no! It goes much further than purely investing in the next generation.

Just as we provided supplies to the children of Yanacancha, we believe in providing for and fostering a brighter future for the many villages where our porters come from, and the surrounding areas in which we trek, when we are able.

And so, our initiatives extend beyond this one, with dedication to contributing to local development projects and making a lasting impact. Future projects in store might include things like improving school infrastructure, supporting health initiatives, or investing in small business development.

By strengthening Peruvian communities, we empower not only our workers, but their entire families and villages.Travel with us and Support the Education in Peru
