The international humanitarian organization CARE is leading a project to alleviate poverty and build government capacity in northern Peru. The project targets the districts of Quiruvilca, Usquil and Sanagorán, where poverty is endemic and the average monthly income is US$54. In these three districts, located near Barrick’s Lagunas Norte mine, subsistence farming is the primary means of survival.
