Asociación ACDS Warmis

This programme concerns integrated sustainable development to strengthen vulnerable Quechua families in Andes villages surrounding the city of Cajarmarca in North Peru. It aims to equip farmers with better agricultural techniques in order to cope with climatic and environmental changes. Quechua women attend literacy classes and generate income for their households with their small enterprises (production of crafts, etc). Their children and adolescents  receive education with values and attitudes of self-affirmation, confidence in themselves and others. The programme also promotes decision making and the non-violent resolution of conflicts by promoting social behavior.
