Hello from Cusco and the Andean Youth Program! We are excited to introduce Apus Peru and El Albergue, two of our Peru-based student sponsors who help us make our program possible. These businesses support educational and leadership opportunities for high achieving students from the Sacred Valley and Mapacho River Valley regions of Peru.

Meet Apus:

Apus Peru Adventure Travel Specialists is an adventure trekking company providing travellers with sustainable and environmentally responsible travel to lesser known wilderness locations. Founded in 2005, Apus Peru is committed to responsible tourism and strives to support Andean communities by giving back. Not only does Apus Peru support Mosqoy’s Andean Youth Program, but it also contributes a portion of every trek cost to Peruvian not-for-profit, Threads of Peru.

Fernando in the Sacred Valley

We are excited that Apus Peru is supporting tourism student, Fernando Echame Melo. As an official tour guide, Fernando hopes to teach travelers about his community and their weaving traditions. Thank you to Apus Peru for helping to turn Fernando’s dreams into reality!
