The empowerment of women transforms their role
The empowerment of women transforms their role in the community. The objective is that in the future they will play an essential role, being the decision makers and leaders of their own productive projects.
Supporting and encouraging women's goals through workshops focused on business development, leadership and human development will enable them to set specific and attainable goals that will help them achieve stability and success.
The empowerment of indigenous women as powerful agents of change could only strengthen their communities and nations in the face of the challenges they face.
I am a craftswoman because it was a knowledge that my mother passed on to me, she was taught by her mother and so it has been from generation to generation. For me it is important because it is a way to generate money. My journey with NGOimpacto has been amazing and a great learning experience. Thanks to improving our skills, we now make better products that we sell at a fairer and more ethical price. Thanks to the sales, we are able to feed our families. It has been a great help to me as an indigenous woman artisan and I am very grateful.
