Supporting Girls' Leadership

Dear GlobalGiving donors,

Thank you so much for your donation to Awamaki girls' leadership program. We are currently working to secure start-up funding for the program; your donations will help us to offer this programming to the teenage daughters of our cooperative.

In the meantime, we continue to support the girls in small ways, including handing out school supplies to their mothers during a recent meeting. School is starting soon in Patacancha, and while schooling is free, supplies can be very expensive for poor families and one of the many barriers to girls completing high school. Your donation allows us to help families support their girls' schooling school.

Please see the attached photos of Mercedes, our Women's Cooperatives Coordinator, handing out school supplies to the women of the Patacancha weaving cooperative.
