THE ARTISAN : AWAMAKI


 

Awamaki (which means “handmade” in Quechua) is a community-based nonprofit and social enterprise working with artisans in the Sacred Valley in Peru. The organization works with more than 140 female artisans from several different cooperatives. Many of these women are from rural farming communities. As a member of the Fair Trade Trade Federation, Awamaki provides educational programs and workshops about production, organization, quality training, and entrepreneurship. The women receive the skills and training essential to one day lead their cooperative with financial independence and self-sufficiency. Awamaki also works with local communities to build knitting centers and help smaller producers increase their capacity and reach.
