Voluntary work in Peruvian Artistry


Our program is linked to the departments of Ayacucho and Huánuco. Both regions have suffered the impact of terrorism and their people are at last recovering and anxious to move ahead, looking to the future with optimism. Fair trade offers them a way of life which dignifies their culture and traditions. The circumstances in which they are doing trade, however, are changing: thanks to mining and industry the Peruvian economy is growing, and with it the cost of life and production costs are going up. For those who are outside the sectors of economic growth these changes merely highlight their poverty.

If you would like to help us, either from abroad or here in Peru, please write to us at nhidalgo@peruvianartistry.org and tell us about yourself and what you would like to offer our fair trade program. We will be very pleased and grateful to consider your proposal.
