The award-winning travel company Adventure Life has selected its first micro-grant recipient of 2011, the Mantay Shelter, in Cusco, Peru. The shelter supplies young, single mothers with a safe environment where they are counseled, educated, and given technical training. Currently, the Mantay Shelter is the only place in Cusco that gives young mothers the opportunity to take on and develop their role as providers, while simultaneously embracing their adolescence.

Adventure Life’s ongoing grant program provides funding for small, grassroots projects throughout Latin America. Adventure Life grants have funded reforestation and home restoration projects in the Andes; a conservation-focused bird-watching festival for youth from poor villages in Peru; a Christmas fiesta at an orphanage in Costa Rica; a new water pump for a community near Machu Picchu whose traditional irrigation system was destroyed by floods; a children's community art festival in Guatemala; and a new science lab in rural Ecuador. The grant program is one of the proudest accomplishments of Adventure Life. Review more information about the company on its Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/adventurelife
