Mission

Programs

Awamaki runs two programs: Women's Artisanal Cooperatives and Sustainable Tourism. Our Volunteer Program brings in international volunteers to support these programs, and the organization as a whole. Awamaki's Women's Artisanal Cooperatives Program provides skills education to women's cooperatives in product design, product quality, and business leadership. Then, the program connects them to local and global fair trade market access for their crafts, which include woven textiles, knitwear, handspun alpaca yarns, and sewn garments and accessories. Awamaki's Sustainable Tourism program trains rural women to host community visits and homestays, sell their artisanal products directly, teach Spanish and Quechua classes and offer weaving demonstrations and artisanal workshops. Then, the program connects the women to market access in the local tourism economy.
