Recently, Doris Loayza, an MA Candidate at New York University’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies visited MADRE’s sister organization CHIRAPAQ in Peru. While there, she learned more about the MADRE-supported “Voices for Justice” radio program with Indigenous Peoples. She recently wrote about her trip in a blog post on CHIRAPAQ’s website. As supporters of this project, we’d like to share a short excerpt with you now:“I was especially impressed by the wonderful group of producers in Huanta, how enthusiastic, well-organized and open they were with me, and the pride they have for their Quechua language and roots...it is the most important part of their identity. And that is the reason why Quechua radio is still an important part of life in Andean towns…”Click here to read Doris’ full blog post on the CHIRAPAQ website.Thank you for your continued support of this important program. With your backing, Voices for Justice allows rural Indigenous women to develop an innovative new means to share knowledge and disseminate information to their communities, important steps in promoting their culture and demanding their rights.
