Project "Empowering Rural Mothers as Home Educators"

Training for Women Mothers Training mothers encourages their own development based on two objectives i) stimulate their own development can participate in their child's development as co-educators and trainers for the future, their children have appropriate development that enable them to enter the workforce and ii) from the previous point, there is a change in the self-esteem of these women co-educators and instructors, both in front of their children and in front of themselves. This new self-image on the basis of recognition of their skills and competencies, allows them to choose to participate in the workforce recognizing the benefits that such activity makes it easier in terms of autonomy, social and economic improvement.

In conclusion, while women require more preparation than a cognitive behavioral and psychosocial to integrate the workforce, course instructor estimate that workers could be responsible, punctual, meticulous in detail, able to follow instructors, teamwork and assess new opportunities (although seeing more as a benefit for child especially in the economic sphere).
