All hikes, tours, and classes are led by friendly, experienced adolescent youth guides from Niños Del Sol Children’s Home. Your payment, which is a tax-deductible donation in the United States, helps support the Niños Del Sol Children’s Home in Urubamba and our companion residence for college kids in Cusco.
Our adolescent and young adult Niños designed these programs on their own, guided by their lifelong interactions with tourists to the Sacred Valley. They’re learning business skills as well as practicing their English while they earn a part-time income and help support their home.
We are contacted by many tourists who want to visit our home, bringing gifts or offering the gift of their labor, but for kids, this is a better option. They are learning how to earn rather than passively receive, and they are meeting donors as equals, with something of value to offer in exchange for your donation. Thank you for supporting this program.
Lauren Haas –
I brought two Women’s Adventure groups to Peru in early 2019, and both groups said their market tour with Avishai was one of the highlights of their trip. It was enlightening and entertaining, and it was an opportunity to get really close to local life and understand Peru on a different level. Several of the women think Avishai should have his own television show describing the joys of fresh organic produce from the Sacred Valley!
Disclaimer: I serve on the board of this organization, but as a businesswoman I wouldn’t bring my groups here if I didn’t know that that the experience would be outstanding.
