The need or cause you are supporting

What is the specific problem, cause or opportunity you are exploring?

With more than 71 indigeneous ethnicities, Peru is a country that has learned the importance of building innovative approaches to engage, collaborate and include its native communities in all sectors. Join the Peru experience to build creative ways through which minority communities can be given better opportunities to prosper and preserve within their cultures.


What is the big-picture idea/vision and desired outcome of what your LiA project is trying to achieve in order to address the need or problem above?

Empower the minority groups in Peru, especially women.


These represent how you will achieve your goal. Write down three to five SMART objectives outlining how you will achieve the overall goal.

  1. Conduct 1 minor research about the cultural situation of Peru in the latest 50 years by week 1
  2. Conduct 1 minor research about the political situation of Peru in the latest 50 years by week 2
  3. Conduct 1 minor research about the ecomonical situation of Peru in the latest 50 years by week 3
  4. Try to focus on 1-3 minority groups for empowerment by week 3

List any challenges, barriers or risks to achieving your objectives

  1. Remote working from Mexico
  2. Not enough knowledge of the cultural background of Peru
  3. Cultural arrogance

Ideas to overcome barriers or challenges

  1. Work closely with the volunteers in Peru. Try to connect with them in video format
  2. Get to know more about Peru through all channels: books, magazines, movies, games, etc
  3. Communicate with scholars from different cultrual backgrounds. But usually cultural arrogance is not easy to get rid of.
