Located in the quaint town of Ollantaytambo, Cusco, Peru, Awamaki is a Peruvian and U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes community development through fair trade artisan cooperatives, sustainable tourism operations, and local community education. In particular, we believe that empowering the local women through successful market participation, as both consumers and producers, is linked to economic opportunities, growth, and improved well-being that result in lasting social transformations.
Interns and long-term volunteers contribute greatly to Awamaki's program development and daily operations across all our programs, and they are crucial to the achievement of our mission. Additionally, our staff and volunteers have the opportunity to live and work in the heart of the Sacred Valley, where they are immersed in the region's Incan heritage and are just a quick trip away from many of Peru's best cultural and historical sites.
