We are all about Huanchaco.
Craft promotion and sales.
We work with small social projects started by local people to promote the growth and social welfare of this community. Come see our projects! Come join our team either here or at home — Volunteer with us and live in our new volunteer house or donate through paypal to make lives.. better.
‘Huanchaco Huanchaco Huanchaco!’ you can hear the combi drivers shout as you wait for the bus from Trujillo. But what is Huanchaco? A sleepy little fishing village? A booming tourist village? a place to come visit and play?
Huanchaco is all of these things. And its also a place where the poor are struggling for a way to live new lives.
Huanchaco has a small but diverse population, fishermen and store owners,hosteliers, tourists, volunteers, long time residents and newcomers…and the people who live on the hills surrounding it…many of them service workers. There are children, some without homes or parents to support their growth. Our goal is to support the projects that are begun by local people for local people with volunteers, donation capabilities and hard work.
We love our new volunteer house. We are grateful for five bedrooms, five showers, (one is even hot) and a huge space in which to live simply, work hard and laugh alot.
