What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

FWAAR's Cotacachi Project addresses the need for emergency refuge for women victims of domestic violence in the rural Andean region of Cotacachi, Ecuador and serving as an intergral part of the Cotacachean Interfamilial Violence Network, the shelter will work to strengthen the already profound efforts to eliminate gender violence and promote women's empowerment in the community.

How will this project solve this problem?

FWAAR's role in the Cotacachi Project is two-fold. FWAAR seeks to generate substantial donations to financially facilitate the development of the women's shelter and provide our Ecuadorian partner organizations with comprehensive research.

Potential Long Term Impact

The FWAAR Cotacachi Project works to eliminate violence against women and children, and, until that happens, to provide safety and support to survivors of that violence as they take control of their own lives.
