TOUR GET INVOLVED Duration: 04hrs. Departure time: 09 a.m.
Pick up at your hotel and the first stop is the local San Camilo market, Apart from being Arequipa’s main supply center; here with the help of your guide you can purchase products and supplies that we’ll later share with the children we visit. We suggest you buy school supplies, food, and toys. (No candy or chocolate please) After the San Camilo market, we will drive uptown to the suburb of CAYMA, where we meet Padre Alex. He will show us around and explain how his daycare center, which runs mostly on donations, takes care of underprivileged children of the area, aged 2 to 5. Working mothers leave their children to be looked after by the staff (usually other mothers who also work at the center) until they return from work. The daycare centre offers meals, medical attention, and preschool education; this is largely thanks to the good people who support it. We share with the children the products that were purchased at the San Camilo market. This is a wonderful experience for visitors and we encourage you to interact with the kids. On our tour, we will also visit also some comedores populares, small eating establishments that provide breakfast, lunch and dinner to locals on a limited income. These “comedores” are maintained thanks to the hard work of the Club de Madres, an association of women that actively participates in the upkeep and running of the Comedores. We head back to Arequipa City, visiting en route the Yanahuara lookout, where you have a nice view of Arequipa’s three well-known volcanoes. Return to the Hotel.
