Awamaki transforms communities by giving women access to income-generating opportunities. Half a million tourists travel through Ollantaytambo on their way to Machu Picchu every year. Despite this influx of tourists, rural, indigenous women are left out of the modern economy. Small villages located just outside the town’s vicinity live in poverty, many having no roads, electricity or telephones. Access to schools and health clinics is limited. Awamki works to create and expand the women’s opportunities to participate in the modern economy in these locations.
