Rural girls are often not educated.Gender inequality favors educating boys & girls as 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 and no 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
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
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
