Peru Project for 2007

I have been traveling in Peru since 1999. During that time we have found many worthwhile projects help the poor people of that country. Read about these travels in my other January 2007 Blog Updates about Peru.
We only support projects we have direct contact and have personally scouted the needs of the project. We purchase the materials in person and we deliver the materials in person.
Over 90% of the money raised goes directly to our projects. The other percentage of funds is used for guide fees in Peru, newsletters and videos documenting our work in Peru.
Some of our past, and current projects in Peru include:
1. Building the Jack Wolff School for 400 children in the Amazon rain forest.
2. Supporting 80 kids in the jungle at the Puerto Ocopa Orphanage with new clothes, books and bulk food items.
3. Helping 20 girls and the Chosica Boarding School and Orphanage with clothes and books.
4. Planning an annual birthday party for 40 homeless kids who live on the streets of Iquitos and providing new clothes and a dinner party.
5. Buying shoes for 50 kids who live in a rural mountain village outside Cuzco at 12,000 feet elevation.
6. Supplying 100 books each for remote schools in the jungles or mountains.
PAC Tour Riders have raised over $50,000 for these projects the past three years. Future projects include building a new school for the cost of $25,000 in a remote area along the Amazon River. We will continue to support and monitor all of our past projects.
Many of these projects are provided anonymously. The children are thankful, and we know we helped them, and that's enough credit. These are nondenominational projects. We support projects for all children of various faiths, without expecting anything in return.
