Alivicha Peru provides artisan jobs to women in Peru’s rural areas while providing the Alivicha community of hand-knitters access to training in reproductive, political, and economic rights. The organization gives Peruvian women an opportunity to leave the domestic sphere and “build a relationship with the world,” so that they can realize their full potential and exercise their rights as women.


Artisan Voices

"Before, artisan crafts were not valued as income-generating work. Today, for me, it is a job which permits me to send my four daughters to school and pay the home expenses; now I am very happy because I am not a cattle herder working for others, I am a woman artisan in charge of quality control and teaching the members to ensure production quality. ”
— Señora Isabel
