Scholarship Recipient Announced & Projects are Underway!

Kallpa Warmi joins as our newest partner

Mírame and Hearts of Gold are excited to announce the winners of our first scholarship position to KALLPA WARMI!

"Kallpa Warmi" means "strong woman" in Quechua, an indigenous language of the Andes. That is exactly what this group is! These strong, brave, hard working women from Sayausi (a small rural town outside Cuenca) fight every day to support their families. With this scholarship, Kallpa Warmi has access to workshops focused on strengthening their organization and entrepreneurial efforts, as well as dialogue circles focused on women's empowerment! Please join us in giving Kallpa Warmi a warm welcome!

Our relationship with Kallpa Warmi has quickly developed, and we are already engaged in several projects that are empowering these 90 women!

So far, women leaders of Kallpa Warmi have attended professional workshops in Strategic Planning (7 hours of instruction), Leadership and Communication (40 hours of instruction), and Fundraising for Nonprofits (7 hours of instruction).

Aside from these capacity building workshops, we also organized a private workshop with Kallpa Warmi where 15 women and 3 men learned about women's health, holistic practices, and wholesome self-care through natural remedies. Given this group's tie to mother nature, this workshop connected participants with the roots of their culture, and encouraged feminine personal care. The next workshop series we are planning is in entrepreneurial branding for artisans.

This month we also had a lovely site visit with 15 Hearts of Gold stakeholders to meet the women of Kallpa Warmi and learn more about their artisanal, agricultural, and entrepreneurial projects. It is very special for supporters and program participants to bond and develop respect for one another. If you'd like to read more about the donor experience,  we encourage you to watch a short video showcasing our special visit, or to read a reflective piece written by Hearts of Gold supporter Jeremiah Reardon!

Interested in keeping Mirame’s momentum high? Next week on Wed. July 18th, you can make a gift that has DOUBLE THE IMPACT! For 24 hours, your one-time contribution will be matched at 50%, and any new monthly donations will be match at 100%!  Stay tuned for your chance to grow this incredible program!
