History of Past Projects
We have been traveling in Peru since 1999. During that time we have found many worthwhile projects help the poor people of that country. 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
Some of our past, and current projects in Peru include:
1. Building the Jack Wolff School for 350 children in the Amazon rain forest.
2. Supporting 80 kids in the jungle at the Puerto Ocopa Orphanage with new clothes, books and food items.
3. Helping 20 girls at the Chosica Girls 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. Supplying 100 books each for remote schools in the jungles or mountains.
PAC Tour Riders have raised over $200,000 for these projects over the past ten years.
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.
Donations of $100 or more will receive a copy of our 41 minute DVD about our 300 mile adventure over the Andes Mountains to deliver food to the Puerto Ocopa Orphanage.
