- La Vida supports education for women in a remote indigenous community in Peru
- The educational boarding houses project prevents young women to walk from up to 8 hours each day to get to and from school
Description of Project
Having a high school diploma will directly benefit the young women by providing them with further work opportunities. By having an opportunity to access better paid jobs or continue to further education, they are breaking away from the cycle of poverty and are able to provide their families and future children with a higher standard of living.
