Misminay Community & Non Government Organisations
We fully support "Wings"
Wings was born as a first responsible tourism project in the community of Misminay in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, in 2007. We contributed with funding for the construction of the touristic infrastructure and training for members of the community. This first contact became a bond that has gotten stronger throughout the years, through collaborative work in social responsibility projects that benefit 23 local families. The last generations of Misminay have stopped migrating, because in tourism they found an opportunity to enhance their quality of life within their hometown. Throughout the years, Misminay has improved and diversified its touristic product to adapt to the different traveler profiles.
