Majestic Peru feels that it is essential to give back to the local communities and has chosen to do so through donating to already-established NGOs. These NGOs have been working with remote communities for years and the extra funds that they receive through your donations will ensure that they are able to continue their work and to help more people. Sustainability involves protecting people and environment and for this reason we have chosen to support Threads of Peru and the Pacha Conservancy.

Threads of Peru works with weavers from remote Andean communities to help revitalize traditional weaving techniques, provide training and perhaps most importantly, to provide a market for their skills and products that would be otherwise inaccessible, through their online store. People are able to purchase goods online that are made in these small communities and have them shipped directly to their homes in addition to the talented staff of Threads of Peru who work with international companies looking for fair trade elements for their designs. The earnings generated by the weavers help with the education and health of the family and to create opportunities for future generations.
