Banesa is the founder and lead of Ñañaykuna, which is an organization directed by young people in the city of Cusco, Peru. The collective provides educational tools for the empowerment of women survivors of violence and young people in vulnerable situations in marginal urban areas and rural communities of Cusco. They include in their work the revaluation of cultural identity based on ancestral teachings inherited from the Inca culture.
In these difficult times, Ñañaykuna is committed to supporting women who need information and resources. For which they are implementing the project "Families Online", which seeks to make visible the problems that women have been going through because of the global pandemic, and thus, the world to finally get to see them and support them.
This initiative aims to share information on hygiene practices, digital security and violence prevention strategies. The target population is more than 500 families composed of vulnerable populations, such as single mothers, adolescents and girls in rural communities and peri-urban areas of Cusco. Additionally, they will continue to provide family planning workshops in order to improve the quality of life for all: through equality without distinction.
To achieve this, Ñañaykuna needs you. Let's work together and make the world a better place! Nothing should stop us.
