Quechua Benefit created Alliyma to empower women using their existing talent as master spinners of alpaca fiber to earn a living wage for their families. Your support of Alliyma is changing the future for these women.
The Andean Pastoralists of Peru are often women of immense talent with little prospect of lifting themselves and their children from the heartbreaking poverty of everyday life at 15,000 feet above sea level. These women are keepers of the ancient art forms – spinning, knitting, and weaving.
The alpaca industry lies at the core of any effort to break the cycle of poverty in the highlands of Peru. With your help, we can change the future for these women and children through our economic empowerment and preventative medicine programs.
