The foundation of "Responsible People" is a non-profit organization seeking a daily environmental and community´s problems to investigate them, study them and find some solutions. In this way, we can help the long-term viability of the planet for our future generations. The foundation contributes to diverse projects focused on social enterprises, healthcare, enviroment conservation and emergency areas.
The foundation was established in 2010 by Ruth Soledad Caceres Rodriguez, Milagros Valery Toledo Sohakita and Edwin Edgar Caviedes. The foundation is registered under the tax identification number (RUC): 20603955618 in accordance with the act on non-profit organizations in Peru (please see the licence below). Using financial aid of allied tour operatours, we can settle costs of our project development. Consequently, we invest 100% of private, public and corporate donations for this purpose.
Enterprises allied to the "Responsible People" are uniquely linked with tourism. The activity of the foundation is self-sustaining thanks to travelers coming to Peru.
While other development projects usually generate positive results in a period of over 3 to 5 years, our projects have obtained positive outcomes within the first year of existence. In the case of some of our previous activities, we have seen continuous growth in more than a year.
As a social enterprise incubator in the tourism industry, we work with groups involved in community development projects related to our business model. Our projects include services and products that are part of the tourism value chain such as meals, accommodation, handicrafts, transport and experience.
We provide trainings and grants to members of local native communities as well as we include their services or products into itineraries of individual tours. In addition, we mediate volunteer activities for those interested. In this way, we make our projects successful and sustainable for the long-term.
The foundation of "Responsible People" means a chance and the beginning of a change. Once we start running more projects, their impacts will multiply within a related community.
