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.
Peruvian Promise educates and empowers young women and enables them to reach their full potential through a unique formula. We combine enhanced educational opportunities along with mentorship and participation in service and structured empowerment classes to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to for these young women to rise up and break the cycle of poverty.
Peruvian Promise 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, transforms girls' lives and enables them to reach their full potential.
