Project #20 | Women's Economic Empowerment in Peru
Our partnership with Krochet Kids
ODW’s partnership with KKi helped provide the initial start up costs for a brand new project in Lima, Peru. The $21,000 raised through this collaboration provided the wages and workshop space for a group of 10 vulnerable women.Through an innovative program, they offer women the assets, skills, and knowledge to pull themselves out of poverty. By taking part in their rehabilitative program, women are instantly able to provide for their immediate needs, while also taking part in essential career training that will be the foundation of a successful future. The funding of this project was used as the kick-start that launched their program in Peru into a sustainable cycle of employment and empowerment for many years to come.
Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
If you want to support future projects like this you can make a donation to our jobs and skills fund.
