SEPTEMBER 6TH | 6:00-8:30PM | EMBASSY OF PERU | WASHINGTON D.C.
At this year’s Annual SVP Event, our goal is to raise enough funds to open FOUR new spots for adolescent girls from remote communities in the Sacred Valley of Peru to benefit from boarding, access to education, tutoring and mentorship. It is our hope that we can expand to meet the needs of more students who desperately want a chance at an education and at a choice for their future.
The Sacred Valley Project and the Embassy of Peru cordially invite you to join us for our third annual Evening with the Sacred Valley Project. This year we are focusing the evening on creating awareness for the obstacles girls face in reaching secondary schools within the Andes. Showcasing footage of the journey students face, we will tell the story of two Sacred Valley Project girls and the distances they, and others among them, must travel from their communities to access to education.
We hope you’ll join us to celebrate the young women in the Sacred Valley who are transforming their lives through education by enjoying an evening of inspirational programming, silent auction, Peruvian dance, the Embassy’s latest Peruvian art exhibit as well as Pisco sours & hors d’oeurves including Peruvian fare sponsored by the Embassy of Peru.
Returning again for the second year, Papalca USA specializes in sharing the knowledge and love for Peruvian arts, music & dance.We are so excited to see these talented dancers perform again this year!
Proceeds of this event will benefit the incoming SVP Students for the 2019 school year.
Thank you to the Embassy of Peru, all of our volunteers, Board members, silent auction donors and supporters for helping make this event come alive for three years in a row! We are looking forward to seeing you there for an inspirational evening in support of adolescent girls from remote areas of Peru who seek to complete their secondary education.
We can’t wait to see you there!
