Knit 1, Purl 2: Girls’ Handicraft Workshop

In September, your Casa Chapi girls in Arequipa had a special treat! Ruth Mogrovejo of Latin Collection conducted a “Taller de Manualidades” (Handicrafts Workshop) in Arequipa where she taught them to knit and create adorable stuffed alpacas to sell!

Ruth told us, “The girls wish to learn to do something profitable for Quechua Benefit. The idea of making scarves that could be sold filled them with joy! They are girls of great talent, perseverance, responsibility and above all gratitude for Quechua Benefit.” 

Your Casa Chapi girls not only receiving first-class academic instruction at school, but they are also gaining valuable life skills at their house in Arequipa. They learn to take care of a home, and they’ve participated in the Handicrafts Workshop learning to create beautiful hand knit scarves and adorable stuffed alpacas. Girls can make warm and cozy items for themselves, and they can sell the crafts they create. 

When the girls can earn their own money, they are on their way to breaking the cycle of poverty for themselves!

Many of the girls who are now in high school have been at Casa Chapi since they were in 1st or 2nd grade. Because of you, they have the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty in their families.

See the difference you’re making! Watch “The Life You Can Save.” 

THANK YOU FOR SAVING GIRLS’ LIVES with your support of Casa Chapi! Your gift to “Education” is breaking the cycle of poverty!
