PRLog - Jan. 21, 2011 - ATLANTA -- Inca Kids, Peru Wow and 5Continents are hosting a “shop for a cause” event benefiting Ensena Peru (Teach Peru) a non-profit initiative aiming to reduce the disparity in education in a country where only 1 out 10 students achieve the expected learnings in math and only 8 out of 100 students have the possibility to attend colleges, technical schools or universities.  

10% of all sales on Feb. 25 will sponsor the best and brightest Peruvian university graduates to enter the classrooms in vulnerable and unprivileged areas in Lima to teach and inspire thousands of children attending public school.  Additional donations will be taken at the store and are tax deductible in the US.

WHAT:    Sample Peruvian cuisine and drinks while shopping for a cause.
WHEN:    February 25, 2011 from 5:00pm-10:00pm
WHY:   Shop for wonderful artisanal products, hand knitted toys and accessories,        home décor in mahogany and silver and natural fiber accessories while supporting high quality education in Peru.
