With your donation you are contributing to the promotion of rights of women victims of violence and displacement.

In the last decade, women have generated processes of empowerment , accompanied by struggles to vindicate their role in our society. In this emotional recovery, the restoration of the social fabric, by grassroots women's organizations and cooperatives provide working capital that translates into autonomy and leadership to a human, social and economic development.

Our organization contributes to providing physical space for meetings and technical training for 100 women from the town of Kennedy in Bogotá D.C., and our coordinator oriented social projects to find viable and momentum required.

Fundamil want that women take these difficulties and change their reality, their families and their community.

Project empowerment 100 women victims of violence and displacement of Fundamil

 The project continues! 100 women keep learning, and being empowered every Saturday. And their kids are growing healthy and good!

 During the past few months different training programs have been done.

 One of them took place two Saturdays, and was about the role of the women in the neighborhood. The psychologist whotaught this program helped those women to come up with the reality of their lives.

Other training was with one lawyer that helps these women to learn their rights. That was really helpful, because many of them have a lot of questions regarding what are their rights and what can they do in their situation.

Regarding the Kids, a special training about reading and writing took place during the past few months and the closure day was held on May  the 28th. During this program the kids had improved their knowledge in how to write and read, improving their skills. They and their families were really happy and proud in the closure event.

During those last moths the kids had been assisting on Saturdays to Fundamil, with the volunteers of UNIMINUTO. Uniminuto is a Colombian University that provide volunteer people to help low income communities. Those voluntaeers were helping the kids with their homework, school task and also playing with them. 

We appreciate your continued support to make dreams come true for this community.

It´s been three months since these women beneficiaries received your contributions, and that has been changed their life, because these Saturdays noon, women beneficiaries of the project empowerment 100 women victims of violence and displacement of Fundamil, gather to share a space of fraternity and of learning, laughter and stories come together more as a group and are projected to a better future.

Women have been preparing in entrepreneurship, boards want to make pastry and bakery products to sell this Christmas. But they not only want to learn how to make delicious food but how to take a company together,because of it they learn of accounting and even they have organized a saving fund to improve their finances and invest in your dreams. So each lesson of how to take the company is a step for their economic independence, one of the main needs to fight against the physical violence and gender. Get who finance their desires is vital to change their quality of life.

They already started their own bakery business thanks to GlobalGiving. Also they have been saving to do this task something shared between donors and their spirit of self-improvement. Women are dreaming a big company, also they are planning to found a big association to contribute with other women and this will help their families and try to solve their inner troubles.

At the same time the process of entrepreneurship, Fundamil touched the hearts of young professionals who dedicated his spare time to educate women, this is the case of Deysy, marketer, who sees the dream of women like her own dream, prepares them to start a business and improve their self-esteem, she encourages and empowers and makes them believe that they  can get ahead , but not each one by his side but together. She was surprised and she said: "it is gratifying how people who do not know the women give their resources to help them out of their problems".

You make it possible, now we are making the difference in our town and we are improving and moving on.

Thanks a lot.

Women have been preparing in entrepreneurship, boards want to make pastry and bakery products to sell this Christmas. But they not only want to learn how to make delicious food but how to take a company together, because of it they learn of accounting and even they have organized a saving fund to improve their finances and invest in your dreams. So each lesson of how to take the company is a step for their economic independence, one of the main needs to fight against the physical violence and gender. Get who finance their desires is vital to change their quality of life. Materials and tools needed to start your own bakery business have been purchased with resources raised through Globalgiving. Also they have been saving to do this task something shared between donors and their spirit of self-improvement.

At the same time the process of entrepreneurship, Fundamil touched the hearts of young professionals who dedicated his spare time to educate women, this is the case of Deysy Gil, marketer, who sees the dream of women like her own dream, prepares them to start a business and improve their self-esteem, she encourages and empowers and makes them believe that they  can get ahead , but not each one by his side but together. She was surprised and she said: "it is gratifying how people who do not know the women give their resources to help them out of their problems".

Another woman in the process is Luisa Gaitán, a psychologist, who has carried out a process to overcome the aftermath of violence and displacement.  Talks aimed at women, share the pain that's been, share their problems and all look for ways to support and leave behind those hard experiences. Fundamil seeks that the women in the group take forces of these difficulties and change their reality, the members of their families and the community.  This is to build peace in Colombia!
