On the process to begin with the new sohort

As indicated in the last report,we were looking forward to impact a new group of ladies providing them the tools to initiate a productive entreprenurial initiative.

For years, our organization has been working with an elementary, middle and high school institution aimed to serve a deaf population. Some mothers whose children are attending this school remain in the facililties along the day waiting for their kids and youngsters to complete their daily journey.  After some time, they have created a group of knitting mothers, who dedicate this time to knitt, producing wonderful knitted pieces they do not know how to sell or deliver to the market. This situation made us think on offering them entrepreneurial education for them to organize and create diverse knitting activities and understand how to convert their abilities in productive small companies for them to solve their livelihoods.

Counting in advance with donations we are expecting to receive through this semester we expect to soon initiate the new program. Along this week we have prepared volunteers who will be delivering the classes. We assume classes will extend for two months so our ladies will be ready to repsent their products in an "entreprenurial fair" and be ready for some celebrations as "Mother's Day" to sell their products.

Thanks to our donors we still have this program available for those women in need. Expectations are to reach about 15 young women attending this new training.

Thanks again to help us better serve the communities where we work.

Great expectations for 2020

As expected for the reduced timing to accomplish the regular curriculum at schools, we did not count with permissions, nor with budget for continued impact on youngsters attending high schools with our financial contents.

 

Somehow  operations which depend fro international donations have been stopped  due to sanctions applied by the President Trump's administration to Venezuelan institutions and officials, causing intermediary northamerican banks which previously served to transfer and receiving funds to and from our country were not available to do it at this time. Consequently, although a few donations have been provided by generous donors to our projects at Global Giving, we have required them to retain such funds until better times we are sure will come.

Nonetheless, we have reached some schools and younsteres for them to be prepared for next quarter when we will be reaching schools to continue with our special financial education contents while we wait for this situation to be solved.  Fortunately we habee advanced in preparing projected materials to reduce costs involved in the implementation.

 

While this situation changes, we sitll have positive expectations and we make our best wishes for a wonderful future for you and your fammilies.  We wish you all a very merry Christmas full of joy and gorgeous celebrations for you and your families. The peace of God be with you this year end and all 2020!.

A new alliance waiting for support

This has been a tough year for our operation facind odd socio economic times for our country and people. However, after the two cohorts completed in July we have not been able to continue with the program not even printed materials having not received any funds to date.  But efforts still for completing new cohorts, consequently we have reached an agreement with a new Municipalilty who is attending low income women providing them with preparation for production through handcrafted artisan production. We have offered them to complete their preparation to manufacture such articles and have concluded that next year witl be providing them with our program contents for them to create cooperative work small enterprises making use of the tools we will teach them.

We hope to have the opportunity to prepare them. .Just US$ 10 will serve to attend one women with all the 12 sessions classes  at the local popular market rooms, presented by our volunteers . Should we complete US$ 250 we will be able to produce these contents and attend them as described for 25 more women integrated to the productive life allowing them to provide their home livelihood.
