Impuls'her during the COVID 19 crisis

Despite these difficult times our director Pamela and our psychologist in Bolivia are keeping in contact with the girls that have benefited from our insertion programme and that have now left the children's home. The lock down has been a critical time for the girls especially those that now have children of their own. They have managed to hang in on there though and should hopefully soon be able to continue their studies and/or search for work. Our support to them will be extended as it was supposed to end in December 2020 as the girls are almost independent now, but giving to the crisis they will need a little bit more time. We shall, however be aiming to start training new young women as from February 2021 at the latest. Your support is more than ever vital. Thank you for all you are doing to help our Impuls'her program.

Diploma Ceremony

The impuls'her project is again this year at the heart of our activities within the association. The end of the year was full of good news and volunteers who came to bring their expertise and good humour to the project.

Great and beautiful news for Bolivia, since the first beneficiary of the program has graduated and we were proud to accompany her during her ceremony! We are very moved to see that R.M. can now look forward to a bright future and we will continue to support her in this way.

As far as Cameroon is concerned, the girls were unanimous in their desire to learn the profession of sewing. Thanks to the donations and the volunteers who went on site, we were able to start buying materials and some beginner's sewing courses. We can't wait to see them evolve and see their creations!

It is very important for us to see this beautiful Impuls'Her project flourish within our association and bring a happy and professional future to the young women we support. We thank you for your support and hope that this project still has a bright future ahead of it in order to help the young women in the creation of their lifetime projects.

Impuls'her Projects - year 1

The young girls present their "Life Projects"

COMPLETION OF THE TRAINING PHASE OF THE PROJECT IMPULS´HER, CARRIED OUT IN A HOME FOR CHILDREN VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKING AND SEXUAL COMMERCE IN BOLIVIA.

 

Our 14 participants have completed 4 months of intense work where they had personal development workshops, coaching, and micro entrepreneurship. All this experience allowed them to visualize their future profesionnal and personal projects to focus on their dreams and aim for a better future.


The workshop on personal development sought to help them accept their current situation in a home with support and care. Subsequently, the "life project" workshop allowed them to have introspect in the short, medium and long term and to plan for a future of independence and autonomy.


The coaching workshop helped the girls gain confidence, leadership and assertive communication skills among others, which allowed them to develop soft skills to face their future.


And finally, the micro entrepreneurship workshops helped the girls to fill out a canvas model of their business plan. For this, they used creativity, incentive and entrepreneurship skills to imagine a business that could generate economic income for them whilst allowing them to become autonomous and independent. 

Some of this girls now feel ready to put their new knowldege to use and seek our financial, psychological and social support to be able to study a career and/or set up a new business. 

We know this project is ambitious and requires strong financial support to continue and enable these young girls to make their dream come true, but we believe that with your continuous help and that of all our donors, we can get these girls where they want to be in life : strong, independent and happy.
