When a game is about to begin, the women are called to the village square with a megaphone. Churubamba is a farming community 3,850m above sea level in the Andahuaylillas district, in the Cusco region of Peru. Around 60 families farm and graze sheep and llamas. The women of Churubamba combine housework and farming activities with afternoons playing football in the village square. They are the Andahuaylillas district champions.
