Posted 01 November 2019 in EMpower News, Grantee Partner News   |   Share


​Citi representatives visited EMpower partner organization Kallpa in Lima, Peru in October, to see firsthand the impact of EMpower's partner organizations. The Citi e for education campaign has been a game changer for EMpower's work to support quality, relevant education for young people globally.

Kallpa provides young people in Lima and Cusco with skills and training to prepare them for employment. It has expanded its reach to exceptionally at-risk youth, such as young Quechua women domestic workers who often need it the most. The program teaches participants to develop their resumes and cover letters, prepare through mock interviews, assists with job search techniques and pairs them with potential employers.

During the visit, they had a chance to speak with Michael, a young person with a disability whose life has been changed through the support of Kallpa’s workshops.

They also heard from Kallpa’s leadership on the results achieved by the young people participants. Kallpa has helped thousands of vulnerable youth to access their first job since its inception.
