Chicuchas Wasi

Chicuchas Wasi Alternative School for Girls promotes gender equality in a male dominated society, personal self-esteem, and human dignity for the ignored, indigenous female population in rural Andean Society in Cusco, Peru by educating, preparing and empowering girls for a womanhood of economic survival, leadership for social change and new opportunity. With special classes we educate parents, teachers and community participants the value of female education- to end poverty, human rights violations, gender inequality, and prepare adult leaders to promote civic changes in their society by working together in the community.
