At Sarah Sharp we believe in making an impact both at home and internationally.
Every purchase supports our artisans in Peru.
Additionally, every month we will give a percentage of proceeds to one or more of the following featured organizations.
Club C.O.R.A.S.O.N is an afternoon community center project located in the rural outskirts of Cusco, Peru. This daily club was created to provide the community's young children and teens who are living in a state of semi-abandonment with a safe place to go at the end of the school day.
Individuals attending the club engage in educational and sporting activities, Bible study, English lessons, homework help, and many more services and resources they would otherwise not have access to, thus, assisting in the development of their intellectual, physical, social, artistic, and spiritual capabilities.
We believe in the lasting impact this community center and it's volunteers are making in these children's lives, and are confident that our investment in this mission will continue to change lives.
our other partners
Sight into Sound
Sight into Sound is an independent non-profit organization located in Houston, Texas. This organization's number one mission is to literally turn sight into sound, enriching the lives of individuals with visual, physical, and learning differences.
This is made possible by hundreds of local volunteers who give their time to read and record a variety of written materials, textbooks, magazines, newspapers, novels, etc.
Other services include Radio Reading, Custom Recording, and Audio Description services. Through these personalized reading services, print-handicapped residents throughout Texas are able to gain access to recorded written materials and descriptions of live performance without cost, giving a joyful experience they otherwise would not have access to.
Altivas Canas ChilDren's Project
The Altivas Canas Children's Project is a grass roots mission that reaches out to children in a poverty-stricken neighborhood on the edge of Cusco, Peru. This program was founded 12 years ago by a single mother struggling to provide for her 3 children.
Quintina gathered a community of women in her same situation and opened her doors to their children. Their mothers were then able to go out and work, which would in turn provide support for Quintina's work. By the end of the day, the kids will have completed their school work, been fed a nutritious meal, and engaged in social interaction and physical activity.
Now, she is looking to expand in hopes of reaching more children; we want to help her make that dream a reality!
