|Hey Awamaki supporters! Today is GlobalGiving’s Donor Matching Day! All donations made to one of Awamaki’s GlobalGiving projects today will be matched by 50% until matching funds run out! Help us raise money to send our weavers to Puno for capacity building workshops! Our goal is to raise $2,700 for our “Capacity Building for Rural Women Artisans” project! If we reach our goal, a group of our weavers will be going to Southern Peru for a field trip to meet other women artisans who have taken on leadership roles in their own communities. You can donate to our Capacity Building project here.|
Awamaki is a nonprofit fair trade social enterprise dedicated to connecting Andean artisan weavers with global markets. We collaborate with women artisans to support their efforts towards educational and financial independence by co-creating beautifully handcrafted knit and woven accessories using hertiage techniques.
