Break the cycle of poverty in Cusco, Peru by advancing education and gender equality for lasting impact.
At Chaska, our mission is to break the cycle of poverty in Cusco, Peru. We are dedicated to advancing education and gender equality for lasting impact.
Established in 2018, Chaska focuses on empowering young women experiencing poverty through education and support services. In Cusco, the impact of poverty hits women and children the hardest, with a disproportionate lack of access to education and better opportunities. Approximately 30,000 families, mainly led by single mothers with 2-3 children on average, live on the edge of extreme poverty, creating a self sustaining cycle. Chaska’s equitable approach tackles this issue head-on, focusing on improving the potential of young women to break free from poverty and live fulfilling lives.
By addressing the educational and vocational needs of these young women, we aim to create a brighter future for all and contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goals #1 (No Poverty), #4 (Quality Education), and #5 (Gender Equality). Join us in making a difference and supporting these young women on their educational and vocational journeys. Together, we can break the cycle of poverty and create a brighter future for all.
