Summary

Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls provides free primary education to undervalued and underserved girls from rural families. Project provides: Art, Hygiene, Values, confidence building, daily hot meal and transportation . CW provides academic skills needed for a secure future of economic independence, growth of self-worth, self esteem, gender equality, and prepares female leaders to advance family, community and society with women examples to change outdated beliefs.Girls+Educuation=Societal change

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Rural girls are not educated.Gender inequality favors educating boys, girls will be domestics. An illiterate female is destined to suffer from hunger, poverty,rape, beatings,human rights violations and inability to care for her children because she is uneducated and unskilled. Often stated: "women have no voice, nor vote" and no power over herself or her children to make decisions to change the gender inequality that keeps her impoverished and silent. Girls + Education = economic survival

How will this project solve this problem?

Education prepares GIRLS/MOTHERS for an adult life of quality, dignity, equality, and financial independence.CW prepares future female leaders for their society to raise the status of all women. Mother's classes focus on value of the female, resources for abused mothers, job training,conflict resolution without violence-also in father's classes. We aim to break belief chain from grandmother to mother to child, that women have no value. We are changing lives & futures of our students & families

Potential Long Term Impact

Educated rural indigenous females prepared for a life of economic security, will end child abandonment & be able to feed their children. Our goal is to prepare leaders to move society to end gender inequality and discrimination of females in Cusco. Prepared female leaders will be able to address abuse and discrimination, and have the personal confidence to stand up to male dominated politicians to end human rights violations against women/girls and change society to one where females are valued
