How can you help us:
Incas del Peru is the only Travel and Education Centre in Huancayo that is registered with in the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Tourism. With this backing we have pledged to support and promote the development of our communities as much as possible, but with little impact on traditional culture. There are many ways that you can help us achieve our goals.
- CRAFT AND STANDARD CRAFT EXCHANGE
The Mantaro Valley is full of high quality crafts created by people that practice traditional and modern methods. To assist in developing pride, a sense of identity and an income for these craft families, Incas del Perú is interested in creating a network of exchange between International Craftspeople. The trading of craft pieces will hopefully lead to an International recognition of the great work of our people. We hope that this will eventually lead to export, and an income for our families. We acknowledge that other community aid groups sell crafts abroad. We however, can safely inform you that Incas del Perú will always ensure that our people will receive the full monetary value for the crafts that they want to export.
- MATERIAL DONATIONS
What your country may no longer value as useful, may still be useful to us overseas. Incas del Perú will be happy to coordinate the donations of materials to needy communities. In the past, we have received everything from clothing and medicines, to tools and dental equipment. Incas del Perú integrates these donations in such a way that the people in the communities do not become “beggars”. We teach how to take these simple donations to work towards a better future. If you have a donation of larger items, we can coordinate grants to help send the items over to us. We are also happy to send photos of your donations at work within the community back to you.
- DONATIONS OF YOUR IDEAS
It is not just material items that can help a community, but the thoughts and ideas of other people as well. In the past, many a traveler, anthropologist, business person, or contact from overseas have shared their views on our projects. If you have any ideas on how we can better any of our services, please let us know.
- PEOPLE POWER
If you are interested in spending some time in Perú, please consider our Volunteer Work Program. Along with the work areas already listed, we presently need the assistance of people with the following knowledge:
ARCHAEOLOGICAL CLASSICATIONS IN PERUVIAN ARCHAEOLOGOGY
- MAKE A LASTING IMPRESSION WITH A FINANCIAL DONATION
Incas del Peru has been involved for years in projects which provide training in various skills to local people. These projects have two goals: to develop a consciousness and respect for the traditions and identity of the region, and to provide an income for people who have few resources.
Our MANOS LIBRES project, for example, teaches inmates of the Huamancaca prison to make crafts which they can sell. This allows them to improve their living conditions and to provide some support for their families. We also plan to develop an E-business to market the products of our local craftspeople to the world. DIRECTLY FROM PERU will allow lovers of Peruvian goods to view and purchase them at reasonable prices over the web. We want to keep the administrative costs low so that the producers can benefit from their work.
We need your support to make these projects possible. If you would like to make a real difference in the lives of the people of this region through either or both of these projects, please consider making a financial donation. We will ensure that your contribution goes to the programs and people who really need it. More importantly, you will be able to see how your donation is put to work: you can come and see for yourself, or we can keep you informed via the Internet.
