Mosqoy Service Learning Trip 2018

We're off to Peru to volunteer with the Mosqoy Charity.
Brentwood students will go beyond the typical tourist route as they work closely with the Canadian charity, Mosqoy, to support its programs in the Andean mountains of Peru. This exciting trip combines sustainable sightseeing with off-the-beaten-track adventuring and a service-learning project that will make a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged youth.

Trip Highlights:

  • Exploring ancient Incan ruins, salt flats, and rural indigenous communities in the Sacred Valley
  • Watching the sunrise at the Incan palace of Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world
  • Hiking deep into the Andean Mountains, camping along the way, to soak at the natural hot springs of Lares
  • Visiting the families and farms of their Mosqoy student buddies
  • Renovating Casa Mosqoy, as their service-learning project!
