Trekking for Kidslogo

Trekking for Kids began as a conversation over dinner in early 2005. Jose Montero and his sister, Ana Maria, were sharing their upcoming plans to hike along the Inca Trail to Peru with a group of fellow outdoor enthusiasts, who, like the siblings, had traveled extensively in the developing world and seen the overwhelming need first hand. As the conversation continued, there was a growing sense that this could be more than just another outdoor adventure; it could be an opportunity to make a difference.

This idea of combining adventure and service continued to brew over the next few weeks as the group decided who would best benefit from their burgeoning efforts. The answer, they found, was right under their noses. Jose and Ana Maria’s father, Pepe, had been an orphan of the Spanish Civil War and they had grown up hearing about the many trials and tribulations faced by these children. Given the abundance of these in the developing world, a consensus was easily reached: they would help orphans.
