Would you like to visit us in the Sacred Valley?

Now you can support our Niños’ future while enjoying a meal, class, hike, or activity in the Sacred Valley!

We get a lot of inquiries from people who would like to visit, volunteer, or bring gifts for the kids. As our kids are growing into adolescents and young adults, we’re moving toward a model that allows them to engage with guests with dignity, and exchange their talents rather than passively receiving gifts.

Your support of their entrepreneurial efforts helps them build self-esteem, language skills, poise, and confidence, as well as helping to fund the Children’s Home.

Please note that these programs are completely voluntary for our kids. They designed most of these programs themselves, and are eager to try out their skills and earn some spending money. They’re proud to be helping to support the Casa, but they are also well-paid for their time and effort.

All prices are in US$ and can be paid in cash on arrival or by making a donation to Niños Del Sol online.

NOTE: Our home is located in Urubamba, in the Sacred Valley about an hour from Cusco, on the way to Ollantaytambo. We can help you arrange transportation if necessary. Our Cusco tours are led by our college students who live in Cusco; they will usually meet you at the Plaza de Armas.
