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.

             YOUR donations provide quality education in every subject.

Most of our girls have few of the basics in their 1 room homes; a doll for a 4 or 5 year old little girl is not a priority when food and a roof are a struggle to provide.

Our fantastic Kindergarten teachers understand their students all too well and created a special art project where each girl would create her very own unique doll herself and when finished it was hers to take home. These are the steps they took with growing confidence and a cheering section of teachers to lead the way.

                                                   Thank you

        In addition to educating girls, YOU are giving them back their childhood

Chicuchas Wasi happy days are here

Kindergarten student rides the CW Van to school
Kindergarten student rides the CW Van to school
Our girls don't have to walk miles in the rain and mud..
                                                                        THANKS to YOU

                               *** Special Opportunity below***

In the Cusco countryside you see little girls walking alone and carrying old plastic containers to fetch water from a communal water source all the time, but it is not safe. Girls alone are at risk most of the time, so CW has a system where we provide the CW school van to pick up and deliver all students every day with 3 shifts of student trips that line up with their class start time. 

Also, the constant rain in Cusco has kept the unpaved rural roads full of holes and sloppy clay. Children who attend school must walk every day a mile or many more to reach the public school. Imagine the fun of slipping and sliding in that mud leaving many children so wet and happily muddy they don't make it to school at all. Attendance at those schools is not good during rainy season.

Poverty prevents the use of bus service for our students, that other children with money can use. Once at CW school, tour older big girls become the big sisters for another exciting day.The added bonus here is that CW attendance is high the entire school year.

When the last downhill road to the CW school is slippery muddy, the van cannot pass and the students must walk across several fields to reach the van on the better road. Ruth will organize a parent work to clear and fill the trenches from water run off so the van can pass. Just another day at CW.

                                      Thank YOU

          For the gift of education and a quality life for these girls.

                 YOU MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOR THEM
