Positive Impact Travel Experiences

Since Plan South America began, we have partnered with a range of charities and organisations with the aim of bringing change to some of the most deprived communities in Latin America.

Our Travel with Purpose programmes enable travellers to get proactively involved in a social project during their trip.  Whether building homes, delivering health and education supplies to rural areas, teaching English or helping with wildlife conservation, volunteers can positively impact the people and places they visit, while gaining a deeper insight into an entirely new culture and environment.

Sol y Luna Foundation

The Sol y Luna Foundation provides shelter, food, clothes, education and emotional support to children of Urubamba and the surrounding communities.

Many of the children lack financial resources and/or face problems at home, such as violence or abandonment.  The initiative of the Sol y Luna school is the first of its kind – offering food, rehabilitation, education and special support to children of all ages from the area.

As of today, there are almost 200 students from 20 different communities attending Sol y Luna. Many of them, who come from very remote areas, are living in temporary shelters from Monday to Friday. The school also has special support for children with disabilities.

Hotel Sol y Luna covers all the administration and running costs, so all donations go directly to much-needed school supplies & books, food and workshops for the children and parents. We are thrilled to be supporting such a brilliant and committed project.
