Our story is the tale of the struggle of two forms of contemplating the future of the world. On the one hand, our eagerness and determination to create a better world through the inclusion of women to the most important aspects of opportunities and decision making of society, and on the other hand the pull of outmoded ways of thinking and seeing women as mere spectators of a world made by and for obsolete patriarchal notions.
The goal of this site is to give women a platform where their voices can be heard and they can be represented, a place where they can show in an overall way their experiences working on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu and other trekking routes of Peru.

Our Commitment to Change
Our goal is to transform both the working standards of porters, both male and female and general and to allow for more women to be integrated into this industry.
We are set to change an industry that was characterized by its exploitative nature, where business owners kept male porters working as modern day slaves while excluding women from entering to work into this industry.
