The Latest On: Economic Empowerment
The women of Peru possess immense talent yet have little prospect of lifting themselves and their children from the heartbreaking poverty of everyday life. 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.
