Tremendous news! After years of hard labor and strategizing the organizers of La Coordinadora de Mujeres Urbanas were able to locate a building for the first women's shelter in the area! But our work isn't over...

The new women's shelter needs your support! We are seeking monetary donations to help build resources within the space--beds and bedroom furniture, a resource center, a computer lab, and childcare facility. We are also looking to support the ongoing training of sexual assault and domestic violence advocates in the center! Please contribute today and support the work of these tremendous women and allies that continue to work for women's rights in the Andes!
