The Sayari Warmy Women's Association is composed of a group of women community leaders and elders, who seek to empower themselves and improve the quality of life in their communities. The majority of the women are from the Ushpa Ushpa Township, an impoverished and majority Quechua indigenous community located in the outskirts of the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia. Sayari Warmy means ¨stand up women¨ in the Quechua language. The women regularly organize community events and workshops to promote women´s rights and to call to attention the historic marginalization of women in Bolivia. The group also produce and sell a variety of handcrafts and goods to raise funds for Wasitukuypaq, an education and cultural center the group supports and operates in Ushpa Ushpa.
