Founded in 2008, Idaho Condor Humanitarian Services is composed of a diverse makeup of individuals on all levels of its structure. With the majority of its members regionally located in eastern Idaho, Idaho Condor’s membership is open to individuals nationwide.
Idaho Condor is primarily involved in health based humanitarian efforts in South America. Each spring volunteers with Idaho Condor travel to Peru on various types of humanitarian expeditions. (For more information on our various health missions please see our missions page.)
Idaho Condor is strongly based in participatory change and other community based humanitarian approaches. It is the goal of Idaho Condor to establish an enduring base within the Peruvian community so health efforts can continue long after our expedition has gone. With this goal of self-reliance and participatory change, Idaho Condor places strong emphasis in education and training.
Idaho Condor provides many educational opportunities. College and high school students with interests in the health sciences or service in general travel with Idaho Condor every year getting the chance to see humanitarian medicine first hand. Idaho Condor also provides supplemental medical training through example to Peruvian doctors and Peruvian medical/dental students. Other educational programs offered include dental assistant training for single Peruvian mothers, a partnership with an all-girls orphanage in Cuzco, Peru (provision of educational supplies), and an educational exchange bringing Peruvian doctors to the United States for observation and training.
Humanitarian expeditions are open to the general public. While expedition teams are limited in number we do our best to accommodate all volunteers that wish to serve with us.
Unlike similar charities, Idaho Condor is proud to be a 100% volunteer administrated charity. This means that we have no paid board members, interns, or volunteers. This way, you can be assured that your much-appreciated donation gets directly to the people who need it and is not wasted on state-side bureaucratic structures.
