History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Perú

Location: Arequipa

Total Budget: $97,267

Area of Focus: Community economic development

The "Asociacion de pastores de Chalhuanca" is an association of Alpaca small breeders located in the Peruvian Andes. This association has a low subsistence income that keeps them in extreme poverty because they count with a reduced number of animals.

The objectives of this project are to:

- Increase the sales of the Alpaca fiber.

- Increase the livestock capital of the association.

- Increase the benefit of all the territorial area by the presence of male Alpacas of high genetic value that will serve as breeders.

- Train the members of the association about the fabrication and online sales of Alpaca fur products

As a result of this project, the members of the association and population of the area will increase their income. Indeed, this project will improve the quality of life by solving problems of family violence, health and education of 150 and 1000 people at a direct and indirect level, respectively.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
