Fighting against gender violence in the high Andean communities of Ollantaytambo, Peru.
Chimpay is an organization operating in the district of Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of Peru, which aims to support the local high Andean communities in their efforts to reduce domestic violence for vulnerable people, usually women and children.
In these communities, isolated from the rest of the world and its social norms, the system for addressing domestic violence is slow and ineffective, often answering violence with violence.
Chimpay intends to work closely with these communities to help them change their perspective on such sensitive issues. By acknowledging the complexity of this task, Chimpay has developed a three-phase strategy involving the following
We plan to do this in three phases:
Sensitize the Local Population and Raise Awareness of Domestic Violence
Provide Legal and Psychological Support to Victims of Violence
Build a Shelter for Women and Children
Chimpay is an organization that aims to reduce domestic violence by empowering individuals and communities.
