Economic empowerment of women is a fundamental basis for the development of rural communities. This project encourages women to evolve and grow inside a safe and supportive environment, to learn a skill or to improve their field of expertise.
This project is part of a non-formal educational program that creates opportunities for learning and personal development based on the needs of the community.
In addition to providing learning opportunities, the center will serve as a community center; these centers promote the expertise of women of the region where they are located, and provide job opportunities because they will be built and managed by women.

Our complementary training programs and their results are reviewed on an annual basis.
We continually work on improving the programs and creating new ones that will suit the women’s needs.
