Yampu Tours Contributes to Orphaned Starfish Foundation
The Orphaned Starfish Foundation is dedicated to helping orphans, victims of abuse, survivors of trafficking, indigenous children and at-risk youth break their cycles of abuse and poverty through technology-based education, job training and job placement assistance and commit to every program for life.
On October 18, 2019 Orphaned Starfish Foundation (OSF) held their 15th gala at the Cipriani Wall Street in NYC that brought together over 500 supporters from the worlds of business and entertainment. Proceeds from the gala benefit the 14,000 children OSF serves across 64 programs in 28 countries around the world. The event featured a red carpet, cocktail reception, silent auction, a dinner and entertainment.
Yampu Tours participated by donating a six-day trip exploring the wonders of Peru to the gala’s silent auction. The lucky winners received a special Yampu itinerary filled with special handpicked accommodations, private transfers, roundtrip airfare, and unique tours that give the best insight on the local communities.
This year OSF hosted 10 of those 14,000 children at the gala and in NYC during the week. It was most of their first times on an airplane and sleeping in a hotel room in beds all to themselves. The children marveled at all the rich wonders NYC has to offer and were delighted to have lived such experience
