Challenge

In Colombia, many women of peasant origin or living in poverty face unemployment, wage differences and high levels of informality at work. The displacement, violence, a large offspring and especially little or no education, make them face low self-esteem, threats in the city, living situations of uprooting, violence, poverty and social exclusion, which generates scarce and unstable income for them and their families, causing other times the abandonment or neglect of their children.

Solution

The project seeks to close the opportunities gap through education and employment. It consists of the development of an innovative, practical and experiential educational program in a Kitchen/Restaurant-School where women will be trained from the strengthening of the being, in entrepreneurship, management, costs, gastronomy and hospitality, so that they develop a profession in the restaurants of the city or own ventures where they increase their income, impacting their families and communities.

Long-Term Impact

Promoting equal access to education between men and women affects the development and growth of a country. With education, women can increase their annual income, improving the quality of life of their families; Food security will be increased, new options will be created in the food industry for vulnerable women, closing the gap of opportunities, income and gender. Educating and empowering 100 women a year contributing to improve their living conditions and those of a society as a whole.
