Young Peruvians of African descent face barriers to participation in low-income districts of Lima and struggle to maintain their cultural identity. Asociación Negra de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos (ASONEDH) partners with Perú Red Peruana de Jóvenes Afrodescendientes (Ashanti Peru) to promote economic, social and cultural participation through civic engagement and helps raise awareness for inclusive public policies. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Peru. ASONEDH’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
