All over the world, women face an increased risk of homelessness, domestic abuse and other forms of violence and disempowerment. But in Peru, the nonprofit Heifer International has created an innovative model for helping women ensure the health, safety and independence of themselves and their families — and then rebuild their broader communities.
We collaborated with Ripple Effect Images and Heifer International to raise awareness around “Healthy Homes,” which gives women in Peru their own physical home, and then teaches them to maintain it: distinct living spaces, hygienic food storage, safe cookstoves and functional sanitation. But the most amazing part happens afterwards, when they’re encouraged to teach their communities the skills they’ve learned.
