About our Visit & Learn Program!

Our Visit & Learn Program is a win-win-win for our visitors, community health workers, and partner communities. Visitors get an invaluable glimpse of life and culture in the high Andes while simultaneously learning about a range of topics. (Topics include health education, health literacy, health care in remote regions, herbal remedies, responding to medical emergencies in remote settings, and/or NGO operation.) For our partner communities and community health workers, receiving visitors is an empowerment and economic opportunity. Additionally, the money we earn from hosting visitors helps us fund the education programs we offer to our community health workers that aim to improve health outcomes in their communities. Visit & Learn with us for an unforgettable experience that benefits everyone involved!
