the impact you will make

01

Toilet Building Project (Moray)

Toilet building (Moray)

The small rural community in Moray is extremely poor with no basic sanitation or sewerage. We are helping to construct toilet blocks in each of the houses in the village, providing families and vulnerable elderly residents with proper sanitation facilities.

02

Community Development (Titicaca)

peru expedition

The communities surrounding Lake Titicaca remain some of the poorest in Peru. The remoteness and inaccessibility of this region means that there is little or no help available from surrounding regions. You’ll help by continuing to build community facilities such as a restaurant for the community so that they can recieve a sustainable income from passing tourists.

03

Community Development (Colca)

peru expedition

 

The small community near Camp Colca sits on the edge of the mighty Colca Canyon at 3,600 metres above sea level. Due to its remoteness and relatively harsh environmental conditions, the community here is very poor. We have a number of ongoing project initiatives within this community and you could be helping with anything from primary school development to building guinea pig houses.
