The current dramatic problem in Venezuela crosses all social classes, ages and genders; but today 50% of households of the poorest classes have as their only head a woman, which is why it is said that "poverty has the face of a woman". Studies show that Venezuela reports the highest teenage pregnancy rate in South America, and despite the fact that in the 21st century women study more than men, inequality in pay persists -among others- and they continue to suffer from gender violence.
The innovation of the project lies in the creation of an educational, healthy, and inclusive space, which promotes psycho-social care, training in technology, sexual and reproductive health, values and training in trades, that allows adolescents at risk of vulnerability, generate income for themselves and their families, and at the same time, train themselves as women responsible for their sexuality, opening paths towards a life project that leads to their definitive empowerment.
By offering sex education, life project and family planning, adolescent girls are able to break the cycle of poverty, training themselves to take charge of their future with responsibility. Superatec as a Social Development Organization contributes in the long term with the Social Development Objectives of Agenda 2030 approved by the UN, our participation is inserted in the following objectives: - Gender Equality, Decent Work, Economic Growth and, ultimately, with the End of Poverty.
