Project Details

Light and Leadership works with kids ages 7 - 17 in our after-school programs: English, Art, Chess, Sports, Yoga, Reading and Math

Mission: The Light and Leadership Initiative's mission is to respond to the needs of the women in the Ate-Vitarte district of Lima, Peru in their struggle out of poverty by improving the availability and quality of education offered to women and children. Through workshops and classes, women are empowered to better care for themselves and their families by improving both their physical and emotional well being, as well as advancing their skills in the workforce. Children are offered similar opportunities and learn the value of education and respect for one's community. We believe the women and children of the Ate-Vitarte district will become positive leaders for change through love, support, and education.
Based out of Tinley Park, IL, the Light and Leadership Initiative is comprised of six Board Members living in the Chicagoland area or in Huaycan, Peru. We are a 501(c)3 registered U.S. nonprofit under the IRS tax code.
