Knitting Hope is a civil non-profit association member of  Misión Huascarán. We empower rural women from small villages at the foothills of the Huascarán mountain (at 11482.94 f.a.s.l) so they are able to generate extra income to help maintain their households and improve their living conditions.

We support them in the design, supplies, training and quality control. We provide them with a textile workshop where the knitters get together and carry out such a beautiful task.

The result is the production of high quality garments in alliance with prestigious institutions. To date, 23 women are registered at the Ushno workshop. Soon we will inaugurate the second workshop in Congar.

I feel good, I buy food, fruits, clothes, everything for his food: fish, meat, beans. Before we hardly even ate protein, now we do. I like to sew, weave, help others. I feel happy.
