Peruvian Hearts is a 501(c)(3) charity organization based in Golden, Colorado, encouraging social, economic, and political change in Peru through the education and empowerment of young women. Peruvian Hearts works to end poverty and gender inequality by educating young women and creating community leaders in Peru—one girl at a time. They enable young women to embrace education, believe in their own power, and dream of a life beyond the conditions into which they were born. Peruvian Hearts empowers young women and enables them to reach their full potential through a unique formula. They combine enhanced educational opportunities along with mentorship and participation in service and structured empowerment classes to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for these young women to rise up and break the cycle of poverty.
