COMMITMENTS TO PRESERVATION
Peru is a wonderful and diverse country, overflowing with enigmatic landscapes, diverse climates, and people from more walks of life than you could begin to imagine. It is crucial to travel sustainably in order to preserve the wonders of Peru.
At Peru Empire, we believe that a country is a sum of its parts, and those parts must remain protected and preserved, to be enjoyed for generations to come. We have delicately crafted our unique experiences in order to minimize the footprints left, while balancing the will and desire to show our travelers the very best of Peru
We are consistently working as a company to ensure that jobs are created within local areas. This provides local people with a chance for a steady and fair income, as well as the opportunity to gain employable skills that can be practiced throughout life, both inside and outside the workplace. Whoever they are, we provide them with a strong understanding of transferrable skills that, wherever they go, will help to support them and their family.
As hard as we work to ensure the people are looked after, we work equally hard to ensure the preservation of the culture, heritage, and lands of Peru. From rejecting the use of single-use plastics and creating projects dedicated to cleaning the shores of Lake Titicaca, to investing in education and community development, we are constantly working towards a better, more inclusive Peru for all of its citizens.
Peru Empire is proud to have partnered with the NGO Amantaní. Amantaní is a charity that works alongside young indigenous people from the Quechua-speaking communities in the mountains of Cusco, helping them to access high quality education and fair employment opportunities. With values centred around participation, diversity and the celebration of culture, Amantaní works to build the strength of young peoples’ existing talents, improve family relationships, and ensure that each young person receives tailored help to reach their potential and access equal opportunities in modern day Peru.
This tailored help can come in many forms, but all broadly cover similar themes. The development of skills useful for life and academia, assistance with the transition into further education and fair employment, and where necessary, the development of psychosocial and cognitive skills. The ethos of Amantaní is centred around using positivity to inspire change, and providing supportive help, nurturing environments, and the necessary support to overcome structural barriers.
We suggest each client make an additional donation of $100 per person at the time of booking, but the decision is left to the discretion of the traveler. Ask us for more information about Amantaní, or visit their website to find out everything you need to know including how to make further donations.
