With this we aim to improve our children and teenagers skills and knowledge. Based on this premise, we look for people interested in supporting this cause, we have therefore come up with the plan of volunteering teaching lessons for them in the afternoons.

Social Projects

Wayki Trek believes, it is a priority to help and assist in the development of local Andean communities. That is why, we are actively collaborating to eradicate problems like the loss of self-identity, lack of basic services, low education levels, little economic development and migration to big cities due to extreme poverty. In an effort to reverse this, Wayki Trek has implemented projects that help to minimize the impact of this problems in the communities. The construction of a Medical Clinic and a rural Library are examples of that effort.
