When you trek with Apus Peru, $15 of your trek price is donated to community projects. We also support our staff (administration, guides, cooks, porters and drivers) in furthering their education in the field of their choice.
Most staff are very keen to improve their English, so in most cases we pay for classes for staff members who have shown dedication and commitment. This is a “bonus” in addition to their normal salary.
We have also supported cooks doing cooking courses, and drivers to do safety training.
