In March 2020, I’m embarking on a nine-day adventure to the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu in support of Cuso International—an amazing organization that aims to eradicate poverty and inequality.
I heard about the Cuso Challenge through Randstad Canada, and immediately knew I had to sign up. I’m so proud to work for a company that believes in the importance of corporate social responsibility. Cuso and Randstad have been partners for more than a decade and dozens of Randstad staff have volunteered on long-term placements with Cuso.
Although I can’t personally take on a long-term placement at the moment, the Cuso Challenge is the perfect opportunity for me to contribute and give back in a meaningful way.
I’ve challenged myself to fundraise for Cuso because I know these funds are used effectively. All the proceeds will help Peruvian women, girls and youth develop their skills, participate fully in society and strengthen their traditional way of life.
The best part—I don’t have to worry about carrying a heavy backpack, setting up camp or lugging cooking materials! This bucket list adventure is fully supported, and I know it will be the trip of a lifetime.
I’m joining dozens of other Canadians on this Trek for Good and I’d love to have you join me!
