Hearts Cafe Charity Profile
The cafe was opened in March 2007 to raise funds and awareness of the plight of the women and children in the Sacred Valley. Currently, we are working with 5 villages in the Sacred Valley: Huaran, Arin, Canchacancha, Rumira in Ollantaytamabo, and Sacaca in Pisaq. Sonia Newhouse, the founder of the cafe, lived in the Huaran for 2 years and works closely with a group of the women from this community. All the profits of Hearts Cafe go to projects in these areas as well as anonymous donations collected at the caf? In August 2007, funding for the projects was boosted by the formation of the NGO, Living Heart. More detailed information about the projects can be found on the Living Heart web page.
Living Heart is involved in a number of education, health, and conservation projects that have been in operation since July 2007, details of which are below. However, there is still so much more that can be done to improve the lives and living conditions of the people here.
