Come with us to Peru or Colombia and know these children first hand. Strip away the materialism that surrounds us here in the USA and experience how these children view the world—their humility, authenticity, and love. Over time, those who have come on expeditions join this meaningful battle to save these kids and give them life. Most comment how happy it makes them. There are many worthy causes in the world today—arts, environment, animals, and public benefit—but no greater joy comes from loving our fellowman and serving the “least of these.”
Announcing the 20th Anniversary Peru Expedition!
Join us August 2-12, 2017. We will return to the Village of Patacancha (at 13,000 feet) to see their development after 20 years. For those that have never been, a visit to Machu Picchu is offered. After our humanitarian service we will return and tour the desert coast
The Sand Dunes of the Atacama Desert
Near Ica are 30 kilometers of pure dunes that lead to the sea. We will take a dune buggy ride and surf down a large dune.
The Mysterious Candelabra Symbol
The Paracas Candelabra is a well-known prehistoric geoglyph found on the northern face of the Paracas Peninsula at Pisco Bay in Peru. Archaeologists suggest is dates to 200 B.C. and belonged to the Paracas culture. Some believe ancient sailors created it as a sign which they could view at sea for landfall. Others believe it represents the motif known as a Mesoamerican world tree.
The Ballestas Islands
Sometimes called “Peru’s Galapagos Islands”, these island lie off the southern coast of Peru, near the city of Pisco. Rich in marine life, the uninhabited islands are home to sea lions, pelicans, Peruvian boobies and Humboldt penguins. We will take this two hour boat tour.
Oasis of Huacachina
We will visit the oasis for our dune buggy ride.
Huacachina is a village in southwestern Peru, built around a small natural lake surrounded by sand dunes. egend holds that the lagoon was created when a beautiful native princess removed her clothes to bathe, but looking into a mirror, she saw a male hunter approaching her from behind. Startled at the intrusion, she fled the area leaving behind her mirror which turned into a lake. And the woman herself is rumored to still live in the oasis as a mermaid
The Nazca Lines
Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, these lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs in the Nazca Desert. Created by the Nazca culture between 500 B.C. and A.D. 500, there are hundreds are simple lines and geometric shapes and more than 70 are zoomorphic designs of animals, such as birds, fish, llamas, jaguars, and monkeys, or human figures. We will fly over these lines in a small airplane.
Help support Generations Humanitarian and our Causes
...Once again we want to express our appreciation for the most sensitive, well informed, organized and best guide we have ever had —and we've had a few.
After all my travels throughout Peru, I was shocked to see the level of poverty in the center of Colombia. The people of Colombia are beautiful, gracious and eager to help their own, but unsure of where to begin. I was honored to spend a few days in Colombia with the children from the drop-in centers. I felt safe and reassured that we were well taken care of. When you meet and interact with the street children of Colombia there is a sense of home and belonging. I would recommend the experience to those wanting to really see how they can make a difference.
Generations Humanitarian is committed to transform street children toward an abundance of health, hope, and loving homes—thereby breaking the cycle of scarcity for generations to come. This is done through broad research, novel development, strengthening nonprofit entities in development, and individual nurturing in a home environment.
