Following a two year stint as a volunteer with another weaving project in the area, M. Kennedy Leavens founded Awamaki Labs in 2009. Based in the Andean town of Ollantaytambo, located between the capital city of Cusco and the U.N. World Heritage site of Machu Picchu in Peru, Awamaki works with over 150 women and their families across five cooperatives, providing education and skill trainings, enabling them to transform their communities. Awamaki facilitates economic opportunities giving these artisans access to a broader market so they may sell their fair trade products.
