Peruvian Hearts

Peruvian Hearts works to end poverty and gender inequality by educating young women and creating community leaders in Peru-one girl at a time. We enable young women to embrace education, believe in their own power, and dream of a life beyond the conditions into which they were born. Peruvian Hearts provides powerful combination of education, empowerment classes, and service to nurture leadership in our scholars. The girls work hard every day as they fight to create new opportunities for themselves and their families. Because of their work individually and together they believe in themselves and their dreams and their ability to change their own lives and the world in which they live.
