Summary

Las Omas is a non-profit that serves 300 women from vulnerable situations in Cordoba, Argentina. These women often lack formal education, have limited job opportunities, and often are victims of domestic and gender-based violence. Las Omas provides job training for these women in fields such as cosmetology, clothing production, and the food industry. Currently, Las Omas lacks a facility to carry out these activities, so this project involves constructing a 210 square meter workshop space.

Challenge

Chacra de la Merced was once a booming agricultural area that has since been exploited by mining companies, manufacturing plants, and a wastewater treatment facility. Recognizing that women were disproportionately impacted, Las Omas began to provide training to increase the opportunities that these women have available to them. Currently, the organization rents a small room to conduct their training, however they are often limited by the size of their facility, hindering their overall impact.

Solution

This project entails constructing a 210 square-meter space that Las Omas can use for their workshops and training activities. ISF-Ar will work closely with Las Omas during the construction phase of this project, enabling more than 100 local women to participate. The goal is to provide these women with additional opportunities to gain construction experience, while creating a space that they will be able to use moving forward.

Long-Term Impact

This initiative seeks to improve the quality of life of women by increasing their access to educational and training opportunities. Over the long term, this is expected to benefit these women both personally and financially, as well as improve the overall local economy. Upon completion of this project, Las Omas will own this facility, meaning that they can continue to serve the local community for years to come.
