Awamaki's "Empowering Women Through Design in Rural Peru" project has been making great progress, and our cooperatives have been taking advantage of some valuable trainings recently. This last week, Awamaki was able to help support Daniel Soncco's trip to Patacancha, where he led two natural dye workshops to the women of Awamaki's weaving cooperative. Daniel, from Parombamba, has worked with Awamaki for several years now, and he is our weaving and dying expert due to his extensive self-taught knowledge of local plants and natural dyes. By supporting Daniel's trip to Patacancha, he is able to spread his wealth of knowledge to other cooperatives that Awamaki's works with, giving the women advanced skills and increased economic opportunities.
