Petaluma Bounty is a farm-based community food security (CFS) project that works with diverse
stakeholders to develop community-based solutions that are collaborative, prevention-focused,
and systems-oriented to address the shortfalls of our industrial food system.Their mission is to
co-create a thriving local food system with healthy food for everyone through collaboration,
education and promotion of self-reliance. Their programs push beyond hunger relief toward
hunger prevention and food security that expands our community's capacity to feed ourselves to
achieve long-term community resilience.
CW began in 1987 focused on the society& tolerated human rights violations of the many abandoned children, as young as 6 years old, surviving alone on the streets of Cusco, Peru. CW created an emergency residential shelter providing good nutrition, health care, access to a local education, basic lifeskills, and more. CW provided a temporary band-aid for these abused children, but did not
address the main reason for their suffering: stark poverty and families abandoned by the male
provider leaving uneducated, unprepared, oppressed and abused women unable to survive
economically or provide for their children. They cannot begin the fight against abuse and
violations to themselves or their children without proper tools or support. If unable to read,
write or do basic math their struggle for a quality life is severely limited. There was a gradual
transition during those last few years of the residential shelter as the older children became
independent and when CW ceased accepting new children. CW reorganized in 1997 with 13
girls creating the only school, FREE of charges, to empower, educate and prepare poor
indigenous girls to rise out of poverty and become future leaders for social change, to end
gender inequality, female abuse and child abandonment. They have increased the number of
girls we serve each year to the 130+ girls in our school today. The impact of CW is huge! CW
is raising the awareness of the importance of educating girls in this rural community.
