Friends of TOP
Part of our mission is to collaborate with other, like-minded individuals and organizations. Friends of TOP, are people working in Peru to better the lives of indigenous people. We encourage you to visit each of their websites and to learn more about what they're working on. You may even wish to take part in some of their projects. You may also be part of an organization yourself who is working in ways that may compliment the efforts of any or all of our friends. Whatever the case, we encourage a dialogue; share your experiences and benefit from those of others.
“Our core belief is that all of us working together is much stronger than any of us working alone.”

We'd like to learn more about your work and discuss how we can help each other.

The project works toward revitalizing the endangered weaving tradition, and to improve the well-being of indigenous women and their families. awamaki.org
