ISAIAS, Southern Andean Institute for Research and Action in Solidarity
ISAIAS trains leaders (especially women) for their roles in rural and urban environments. The Institute also stages ongoing training events for organisations. ISAIAS is a non-government organisation with a Christian background. It sees itself as a kind of umbrella organisation for committed individuals from various organisations and social work charities who have come together to form a civil organisation. ISAIAS provides a public voice for a section of the population inspired by Christian and social ideals, and it maintains extensive alliances with NGOs, grass-roots organisations and churches in the Cusco and Puno regions.
