This project of education develops the human potential and proposes the training of 500 Peruvian & Bolivian women migrants of very limited resources.
Presently, more than 80,000 low-income immigrants living in shocking conditions in Chile are struggling and unable to establish their place in the Chilean work force due to lack of education, opportunities and expertise.
These immigrants, who have come in search of job opportunities, either have left their children in their country of origin, struggling to send them what little they can, or have brought them along, barely managing to survive, almost in a subhuman way.
The project will give Immigrants from various countries the opportunity to have an education and form a career which will give them job opportunities and allow them to leave the marginality in which they presently live in. These educational programs include basic courses of Assistant Nurse or Nurses Aid, as well as Computer Basics, First Aid and Secondary Education.
The goal of this project is to help people develop the capacities necessary to bring about constructive change in their own lives, in their relationships with others and in their communities. The education that is given will provide them with the option, in a short span of time, to chose a worthy vocation, which will generate a virtuous circle that will benefit each individual, their family and their environment.
I want to finish my studies here and get my diploma, and earn enough money to send to my kids, so they can live decently. I hope that some day I can save up enough to bring them here to live with me. - Lily Nancy Arce Vasquez, 35-year old Student
