Amantani – ‘Meet My World’

7 may. 2019 -- Posted by : admin

Established in 2008, Amantani works to defend the rights of indigenous young people in the Peruvian Andes. In a country where indigenous people are half as likely to go to university than their non-indigenous compatriots (INEI, 2017), Amantani work to enable youth from rural areas to access further education.

In 2014 Amantani developed a participatory film project with the young people who use their services. Through 'Meet My World', young people are able to define how they are portrayed, writing and presenting their own films in which they can teach people about what it means to be them.

By harnessing the power of film, 'Meet My World' enables young people to build their own skills and confidence, as well as to become agents of change, using their lived-experience to educate communities and decision makers about the issues most important to them. To date, Amantani have worked with over 20 young people to produce films which have been seen by more than 200,000 people in Peru and abroad.

The Old Dart Foundation partners with Amantani on the ‘Transitions’ program – an innovative project which supports young people to prepare for life beyond school, whether that be at university, in the workplace or on the family farm.
