    Project #1

    Picaflor House Community Project is a holistic after-school educational program for 80 children in a mountain village near Cusco. The project gives free classes and homework help to under-privileged children and provides a safe place to play, learn traditional music, and dance. The children are provided free fruit, clean drinking water and a nutritious lunch daily.

    Project #2

    Peru Dog Rescue Shelter’s main objective is to nurture the dogs back to health through receiving veterinary treatment at the hands of partner veterinarians, as well as loving care from veterinary students and volunteers. Whenever possible the animals from the dog shelter are re-homed with loving families.

    All of the dogs at the shelter are routinely vaccinated against rabies, distemper, parvovirus, coronavirus, hepatitis and leptospirosis. They are also de-wormed and de-flead approximately every 45 days. In addition dogs are neutered when funding is available to help control the population of unwanted dogs.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of March 2, 2021
    Note: Location is approximated. If you see a lodging that is misplaced or missing, please contact us .

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
