Story Behind the Art: Manuela Ramos provides human rights training to indigenous women artisans in the poorest areas of Peru, and markets the alpaca wool stuffed toys they knit by hand. The organization's name, comparable to Jane Doe in the U.S., pays homage to the millions of women who anonymously and selflessly contribute to the development of their communities. The Manuela Ramos Casa de la Mujer Artesana program in the Puno region provides Quechua and Aymara women with opportunities to earn a living wage through fair trade production and acts as vehicle for economic development and women's solidarity.
