This what it's all about!
Solid helps young girls, women and families to build a solid foundation for their own future! All projects of Solid are set up with this vision in mind.
With the social projects in Peru, Solid strengthens teenage mothers, rural youngsters and artisans to improve their living conditions, well-being, health and future possibilities. All of this, with special attention to personal development and awareness of one's own strengths and capabilities.
In Peru, teenage pregnancies remain a large problem. Through different projects we want to strengthen their parenting skills, self-reliance and emotional well-being, so they can break through the vicious circle of violence and poverty and provide a better future for their children.
People matter! Always! Also in our responsible commercial entities we choose to work with women from underprivileged rural communities, with limited access to resources, seeking to present their skills and talents to the world. Individual coaching and social workshops are part of the work environment, because we know that supporting our artisans means uplifting the communities they live in.
Jovem is a 3-year agricultural technical training for entrepreneurial youth, in Ayacucho, Peru. Taking place at the weekends, Solid provides these students with practical, hands-on, learning-by-doing training in Solid's own Montefino farm. Following the training, the students are equipped to start their own business and thrive independently.
Organic quinoa farmers
We’re proud to work closely together with the local farmers in the mountains of Ayacucho, Peru who do a marvellous job and produce organic quinoa. Quinoa is an absolute amazing food. Even the Inca's were certain of it. We empower local farmer communities and help them to improve their living conditions by offering trainings, technical assistance and marketing the best organic quinoa.
