Pacha the Mama Llama

YWCA Toronto has partnered with a local children’s book author and illustrator, Luigi R. La Corte, on his book, Pacha the Mama Llama. The book is about a mother llama named Pacha who moves from a barren but beautiful hill in Peru to Machu Picchu to better provide for her babies. It’s about strong independent women who make sacrifices to better provide for themselves and loved ones.

Luigi will be generously donating 50% of the net proceeds of every book sold to YWCA Toronto - get your copy today!
