We collaborate with the 10 indigenous Peruvian communities we work in to create achievable goals, meet basic economic needs, and create authentically sustainable processes.
Collaboratively developing a new product that matches local techniques with market demands
Empowerment is an important foundation on which we are able to be active leaders in our communities. We program training sessions in techniques, organization and entrepreneurship to enable our teams to thrive.
Reviewing the organizational steps of finishing an artisanal product
Gender Equality is an important theme in our project, as we enable women who have seldom worked outside the home the ability to impact family decisions thanks to their craft traditions.
