Education & Career Openings for Women of the Andes



This project of education develops the human potential and proposes the training of 1000 Peruvian, Bolivian, Chilean women and their families of very limited and low resources.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Presently, many thousand of low-income women living in shocking conditions in Peru, Chile, Bolivia, etc. are struggling and unable to establish their place of work force due to lack of education, opportunities and expertise. These women from the Andes Region, who are in search of job opportunities, either have children or have left their children in their town or country of origin, struggling to get what little they can, barely managing to survive, almost in a subhuman condition.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will give many andean women from various countries the opportunity to have an education and form a career which will give them job opportunities and allow them to leave the marginality in which they presently live in. These educational programs include basic courses of Personal Development, Assistant Nurse or Nurses Aid, as well as First Aid, Nutrition, Art, Computer Basics and Secondary Education.

Potential Long Term Impact

The goal of this project is to help people develop the capacities necessary to bring about constructive change in their own lives, in their relationships with others and in their communities. The education that is given will provide them with the option, in a short span of time, to chose a worthy vocation, which will generate a virtuous circle that will benefit each individual, their family and their environment.
