Awamaki creates lasting impact in the Andean mountains of Peru by helping rural women’s associations launch successful small businesses that create authentic, high-quality textiles and knits. Awamaki invests in women’s skills, connects them to global markets and supports their leadership so they can increase their income and transform their communities.

Comprised of a Peruvian Asociación Civil and a U.S. 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization, Awamaki consists of three main projects: Fair Trade artisan cooperatives, sustainable tourism operations, and rural community education. Though a non-profit, Awamaki uses market strategies to accomplish its philanthropic goals of increasing women’s opportunities for income and leadership.


Interested in preserving Peruvian culture and making a difference in the lives of Andean women while exploring the Sacred Valley Region of Peru? Awamaki is seeking an individual to assist with program monitoring and evaluation so we can better understand the social role Awamaki provides for the local community, the economic opportunities it provides to the members of the business cooperatives, and the extent of its marketing tactics.

Volunteers play an essential role at Awamaki, as their work makes an enormous difference in our programs and in the lives of our women. Volunteers have the opportunity to gain essential experience in business administration, fair trade, social enterprise, ethical sourcing and design, marketing & communications, and non-profit management.

As a Monitoring and Evaluation volunteer, you can expect to:

  • Assist with surveys, focus groups, interviews and data recording with the members of the woman’s business cooperatives.
  • Help improve program quality by assisting with planning and executing capacity-building workshops.
  • Document workshops and what the participants learned
  • Help with monitoring for grants.
  • Produce reports for grants and funders about Awamaki’s impact.
  • Provide program support with administrative tasks and logistical support.
  • Work a minimum of 6 – 9 hours per week at Awamaki's fair trade store in Ollantaytambo.

Please note: the Monitoring and Evaluation candidate should expect a busy but flexible schedule throughout the week, including a variety of tasks and environments. This individual will primarily collaborate with the Community Education Coordinator; yet also have the opportunity to develop his/her own self-led projects to fulfill personal interests as well as any needs identified by Awamaki’s various program coordinators.

  • Data analysis skills (strong Excel skills preferred)
  • Background in professional/personal development programming
