Shear Hope for Arequipa

Organized by: Samantha Priebe

THE STORY:

There are currently around seven older girls living at New Hope Children's Home (possibly a few more by the time I arrive) in Arequipa, Peru. It is my pleasure to have been offered the opportunity to teach these seven girls a trade, the art of cutting hair. In a world where many women in poverty are forced to do work that is harmful for their bodies and rough on their spirits, there is hope for these seven girls to stay out of the cycle of poverty, improve their livelihood and the livelihood of their families, and learn about their self worth.

What's awesome is I was already planning on going down to Arequipa with my husband to work at New Hope Children's Home, but what I didn't know is that the home has been praying for a hair stylist to come down to teach the girls how to cut hair for two years! I am so glad all of this is aligning, and that I can use my trade to empower impoverished women. And in case you're wondering how these seven girls will effectively make money in a third world country cutting hair, I am pleased to inform you that Arequipa is full of tourists and expats who are always wanting haircuts!

Please help me raise some money to bring down the following:

  • some mannequin heads for them to practice on
  • a reasonably-priced shear for each girl
  • a reasonably-priced clipper/trimmer set for each girl
  • some capes, combs and clips for each girl
  • some pre-made folders with step-by-step haircutting instructions in Spanish, notebooks and writing utensils
  • the possible airline cost of bringing an extra suitcase or two to travel with these items if I can't order these supplies directly from the Sally's Beauty Supply in Arequipa
