Women are the backbone of the Andean Cultures. Nevertheless, they are also the most marginalized when it comes to access to education, healthcare, income generation and social contacts. The Club de Mujers de Yurac Yacu, here in Huaraz, Peru, was formed in 2014 with the aim at addressing all of the above. A social group of 12 – 16 women, they have learned and improved upon their knitting skills by using handspun wool, natural dyes to create unique and artistic products. With assistance from Andean Alliance the group has learned to organize themselves, to be officially registered as artisans, marketing, quality control and to help each other to learn. Their weekly meetings provide a safe basis for them to share life events, ideas and conflicts, look for solutions and futuristic planning.
