I am happy to share with you the progress we have made on the project "Empowering 30 Latin people in Mexico", which we launched in April 2022.
After detecting that the economic crisis from the pandemic increased unemployment considerably and forced many people to leave their places of origin to move to Mexico in search of new ways to generate income, self-employment is a way of reintegrating into the world of work through entrepreneurship. However, they faced the developing and managing micro-enterprises or self-employment initiatives without business knowledge and skills, limiting their projects' growth or survival.
We focused on promoting the development of 30 Latin people in vulnerable situations who live in Mexico who can develop a business plan project that allows them to manage their productive activity correctly. Through the "Taller Emprende en Línea," an online business and life skills training emphasizing entrepreneurial, practical, and training initiatives, they can now self-employ and exercise an honest, productive, and well-paid quality job.
From May 16 to June 17, 2022, we gathered the first group of 12 beneficiaries. Thanks to donations from an international institution that decided to join the project, we trained nine of twelve people. The three remaining participants we managed to integrate into the project thanks to the contributions you have given us through this GlobalGiving platform.
With your donation, we have so far managed to support:
Name Business Birthplace
Ana Isabel Travel Agency Venezuela
Adriana Pharmacy Venezuela
Norma Boutique Venezuela
We will continue to seek the support of more people, companies, and organizations to achieve the goal of training a total of 30 people.
We thank all who have joined this cause so far and invite them to continue by our side to positively impact the lives of more people who want to achieve a dignified and productive life.
