Empowering women. Making global connections. Transforming lives.

Awamaki is a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers rural Andean women with skills training, connects them to global market opportunities, and enables them to earn an income to transform their communities.

We’re located in Ollantaytambo, a picturesque, historic town in Peru’s majestic Sacred Valley, between Cusco and the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu.

With our help, Andean women sell their products to international retailers of ethically-sourced handmade goods. They connect with global volunteers who make a difference. They welcome intrepid tourists into their culture.

At Awamaki, we celebrate the impact of our diverse community – the passionate volunteers, engaged donors, tourists and fair-trade shoppers that are collectively transforming people’s lives.
