Empower Ecuadorian Women to Elevate Communities

by Fundacion Hearts of Gold Vetted since 2017 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit


We want each woman to stand up and say: watch me live, watch me strive, watch me succeed. Mirame (watch me) is a newly launched initiative focused on enabling Ecuadorian women to reach their full potential. This project will lay the groundwork for a structured & strategic women's empowerment program to discover the next wave of women leaders through hope, empowerment, and education! Join us and give voice to a grassroots movement where women are mobilized to ignite change from within.

After working on the ground for 5 years, we have seen countless women with a vision to change the world & the lives of other women, but they have no personal or professional support to make their vision a reality. Women have been marginalized in the local context, making it harder for them to lead community initiatives and serve in leadership positions. Without opportunities for self-development and training, Ecuadorian women are too often left disempowered to elevate their communities.


We will take our existing capacity building model to the wider community, to serve all Ecuadorian women who have a dream - one which they have been marginalized out of fulfilling. We will invest in & establish an innovative, responsive program that supports women in critical areas through access to education and training, mentoring, networking and mirco-funding. We want to give a voice to the women who are ready to rise and say: Watch me live; Watch me strive; Watch me succeed.

Long-Term Impact

Investment in Mirame will allow us answer the call of our Ecuadorian sisters- women who dream to serve their communities in new ways, but haven't had the support to take them there. We believe empowered women empower other women, & impacting the spirit of one woman has the potential to affect the 10,000 lives they represent. We want to honor the light women have within themselves to bring opportunity & change into their lives and of others. Mirame is ready to be what they need, & more.
