Challenge

Women and girls who come to the HHWT School are isolated and need to find a supportive community that helps them become more productive and confident. In the Mexican community single women experience poverty and lack of resources. They require an education and a step up in life. Through mentoring and life skill development they will achieve a level of economic security. HHWT needs to buy the tools for the woodworking project for women and girls.

Solution

Our mission in this special project is to empower women and girls with life skills through woodworking and Computer Aided Design which will help them transform their lives and rise above the poverty line. We see the dignity of every human being for their human rights and freedoms at each stage of their lives. This funding of tools for the class will provide our teacher with what is needed to teach life skills to theses women and girls through woodworking.

Long-Term Impact

Women and girls who are enrolled in our school will develop life skills through hands on vocational training in woodworking, CAD and digital citizenship. This will help them to reach their full potential. This technical and life skills education is the key to unlocking themselves and their families from the vicious cycle of poverty. The students acquire more confidence upon participating in our program. These tools will last years and will be used by many women and young girls in the future.
