Challenge

Girls and women in Peru are extremely undervalued and families often do not encourage or allow girls to continue beyond a secondary school education. Many girls with limited education in Peru have early and unwanted pregnancies and are more likely to develop problems with drugs and alcohol. These girls lack the education and tools they need to break the cycle of poverty and change the future for them and their families.

Solution

Peruvian Hearts aims to unlock the potential of young women through the power of education, mentorship, and service to others, and to enable them to become leaders of their families, communities, and country. Our girls' education and empower program increases the leadership potential in rural Peruvian girls through improved educational opportunities, development of their personal empowerment, and growing their understanding of goals through organizing service projects.

Long-Term Impact

Peruvian Hearts gives girls the educational opportunities and tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty and become leaders within their families and communities. Combining family support, greater educational opportunities, and mentorship, Peruvian Hearts transforms girls' lives and enables them to reach their full potential.
