Peru For Less Launches Peru Travel Aid To Help Indigenous Communities Benefit From Tourism

Posted: Updated:

Peru For Less has created an initiative in partnership with non-profit Musqoy to help bring the benefits of tourism to indigenous people still in need of economic development.

Lima, Peru – April 10, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ —

Peru is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South America, and people from all around the world flock to see Machu Picchu, the Andes and the Amazon. However, most of the people in Peru belong to indigenous tribes that have not felt the full benefit of tourism in the same way the major cities have. Peru For Less is a website dedicated to offering amazing and authentic Peruvian experiences to tourists, and has created Peru Travel Aid to ensure the benefits of this tourism reach even the most remote peoples in this breathtaking country.

Peru For Less and Mosqoy have enacted Peru Travel Aid, allowing Peru For Less to get the benefit of the nonprofit’s eight years spent building relationships with 18 remote communities in the Peruvian Andes. Peru For less donates money from Peru tours to support Mosqoy’s work offering opportunities for economic development and promoting traditional indigenous cultures.

The small town of Kancha Kancha in the Sacred Valley recently received hot chocolate, toys and no small amount of holiday cheer from the Peru for Less team and Mosqoy volunteers, memoirs of which can be found on the Peru For Less website or their charitable arm’s official presence, Peru Travel Aid.

A spokesperson for Peru For Less explained, “The truth is that many people won’t experience the extraordinary indigenous peoples of Peru during their visit. Machu Picchu tours, while a life changing experience, cannot encompass the variety of cultures and wonderful peoples that populate Peru, but now those people can benefit from travelers to Machu Picchu thanks to our donation program. This means travelers with us know they are directly benefitting indigenous peoples and making a real positive difference to the country they are visiting.”
