2020 Fundraising Campaign

IN BETWEEN: Our life during the pandemic


The months of lockdown have been a time of uncertainty and change. But they have also been a time of new challenges and of personal and collective discoveries.

During this time, the young women of Kusi Kawsay share about their experience: their dreams and everyday adversities, the hope and the joy of living
