The Light and Leadership Initiative has been working very hard for the past TWELVE years to provide high-quality educational opportunities in Huaycán. So it’s time to celebrate!

On this second edition of our Online Gala: We are back! we have so much to be grateful for.  First of all, our Online Kids Program has been running successfully for already 10 months. HOORAY!!! Also, we will be restarting our Women’s Program later this year, double YAY! 

But to be able to continue all those amazing projects, WE NEED YOUR HELP. 


Performers will join us from all around the world, but more importantly, we will present numerous local artists for a day of celebration of the Peruvian culture, the Huaycán community, and LLI’s work for the past twelve years.  

You can join our workshops, enjoy our performances and WIN A LOT OF AMAZING PRIZES on the Live Bingo, the Instagram Peruvian Quiz, or the Live Raffle, including Huaywasi products, Peruvian Art pieces, … and more!

When you purchase your ticket, you'll receive an invite to our private Instagram page, LLI’s virtual bar, and links for the Live events, which will be broadcasted through our Facebook page, The Light and Leadership Initiative,  and on this platform. Celebrate all day with us on May 8th! 


Let’s have a drink! On this occasion, we will also share some links for those who want to reconnect with their LLI friends from that time they volunteered in Huaycán, or that super fun Chicago Gala 3 years ago. Join us in our virtual bar and catch up with your friends. 

When: Saturday, May 8th from 10 AM to 7 PM (Chicago-Peru time) 

Why? Your funds will allow LLI to continue its amazing programs, like our Online Kids Program which has assisted more than 340 kids in the past ten months, or our future Women’s Program that will provide female entrepreneurs in Huaycán with tools to adapt their businesses to these challenging circumstances in their communities. Please, consider supporting us as hundreds of families depend on our programs each year!

Tickets will be available from now until the 8th (still available the same day of the event!). Once you buy your ticket you will receive an email with further instructions.
