The artisan workshop is a social initiative to promote entrepreneurship and fight against poverty that seeks to provide knowledge and skills to women from vulnerable communities in the Punta Cana region, through technical training for the design and production of marketable crafts and whose manual elaboration comes from the use of mostly recycled materials
Despite the economic growth caused by the tourism, many women from the underseved communities of the Punta Cana region have not been able to be part of the labor market due to their low academic training, causing social exclusion, marginality and poverty.
This project train these women for the elaboration of handicrafts (bags, souvenirs, accesories) using recycled materials (mainly plastic bags, which contributes to the protection of the environment) at the same time promoting the improvement of their life conditions through the comprehensive training (sales, finance, personal development, others) and the generation and / or increasement of their income
This project will continue impacting 43 women and their families, allowing them to empower themselves, raise their self-esteem and meet their basic needs, thus improving the quality of life in their homes (health, education, housing, others) . Another goal is to impact a greater number of women and that they become microentrepreneurs that contribute to the sustainable development of their communities
