The Light and Leadership Initiative

Description of organisation:

The Light and Leadership Initiative's mission is to respond to the needs of the women in the Ate-Vitarte district of Lima, Peru in their struggle out of poverty by improving the availability and quality of education offered to women and children. Through workshops and classes offered in Huaycan, Peru, women are empowered to better care for themselves and their families by improving both their physical and emotional well being, as well as advancing their skills in the workforce. Children are offered similar opportunities and learn the value of education and respect for one's community. In several classrooms throughout Huaycan children participate in art, math, chess, English, reading, and sports classes. We believe the women and children of the Ate-Vitarte district will become positive leaders for change through love, support, and education. Volunteers play an integral part in our organization, from teaching classes, to managing various programs, to orienting new volunteers--join us!
