This grant will support PCVs in Peru who collaborate to produce an annual calendar that celebrates the work of Peruvian women. The calendar will include photos and inspirational quotes of the women who are selected to be featured. The project aims to raise awareness of Peruvian women's leadership. The calendar will be distributed to Peace Corps Volunteers, community leaders, and important institutions throughout Peru.
Upon completion, the calendar will be unveiled in several departmental capitals in events that will include workshops on women's rights. The goal of the events will be to enhance the knowledge and teaching capacity of PCVs and their community partners so that they can effectively incorporate gender equality into their community institutions and daily lives.
One of the organizers of the project is Dani Reuter who is from Portland, OR and is a member of WCPCA.
