The armed conflict in Colombia and the situation in neighboring countries, has produced thousands of displaced people in recent years, women and their children, an important group, have arrived in the city of Medellín. With their rural origin, low schooling, a large offspring, these women must face new threats in the city, experiencing situations of uprooting, violence, poverty and social exclusion.

This is the case of Daniela and her mother, who had to leave their town and come to Medellin, only with their few belongings in a bag. Daniela was part of our girls attended while her mother was looking for how to get some money to survive or perform unfair or poorly paid jobs.

There are many women and girls in this situation who do not have formal or informal education or have not even finished high school, some of them are head of their home and given their unemployment situation, scarce and unstable income and / or informality They can provide for themselves, or for their children. Many of these young women have empirical experience in the kitchen and desire to scale in knowledge while they work. That is why this project seeks to empower them, generating multisensory experiences, forming them from the being, in entrepreneurship, management, costs, gastronomy and hospitality, so that they develop a career in the leading restaurants of the city and / or through their ventures scale and increase their income, impacting their families and communities.

Now Daniela has the opportunity to study, while her mother is strengthened by learning new cooking techniques, to have her own business in the future and to dream of a better life for both of them.

In the country, the environment in which one is born determines the study and career opportunities, as well as their living conditions and that of their families. Let's work together so that more women and girls can have a better future.

Enterprising moms!
Enterprising moms!

           This dream of training breastfeeding women head of the family in the kitchen has already begun.

Some of the moms  participated in a space where we show what the project is looking for, with the aim of promoting them to achieve what they want, which is to build their own business around the kitchen, to obtain income for their children and family or community.

The event included the preparation and tasting for the public, of foods prepared by participating moms from ingredients of our traditional Colombian cuisine. The public was pleasantly impressed with their work and the quality of the food. And for them and the chefs who guided the preparations, it was a moment of recognition and happiness.

In the Corporación Superarse, we are sure that with this project we are not only teaching these women, also we can contribute to many of the objectives that the countries are looking for: reduction of inequalities, elimination of poverty, food security, quality education, gender equality.

You can link and make your contribution here, to build a kitchen school, where we can continue to grow the dream of these moms and their children!

During these initial months, this project is turning from a dream to a reality, in which we hope that many women can transform their lives through a different way of education.

We started with the transformation of the spaces, converting a warehouse into what will be the SCHOOL KITCHEN, where they will learn not only to cook professionally, but to develop their dreams of gastronomic entrepreneurship.

To renovate the spaces and turn them into a kitchen school and restaurant school, we need almost U$50,000

A design firm, gave us their knowledge and desire to help in the preparation of sketches of how the spaces will remain when they are transformed.

A renowned chef, began with the development of the curriculum and recipes that will be carried out during training.

Several companies and contributors, are interested in making alliances that contribute to the different stages of this initial process, so that in 2019, we can start with the first group of 15 women who will be part of this dream of overcoming.

We hope that those who follow us, will be motivated to make contributions that allow us to begin to close the inequality gap for these women.
