Dear friends:


We want to take advantage of International Women's Day to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the people involved in this project with their donations through the GlobalGiving platform.


As you well know, women in Latin America face considerable disadvantages in the economic and labor market. Some disadvantages are the gender pay gap, discriminatory practices, social norms, and behavior patterns. The low-paid jobs and the fewer opportunities to achieve personal and professional development are the biggest challenges.


Some specialists even assure that after the coronavirus's arrival, women's participation in the world of work stepped back 10 years during 2020. It is estimated that today there are 23 million more Latin American women in poverty. This is visible when we analyze that only in Mexico, two-thirds of the jobs lost during the pandemic were held by women.


In Mexico, specifically in Yucatán, women have few opportunities for job development. Consequently, it places them in a vulnerable sector where formal employment is even more difficult in communities where employment opportunities are insufficient. Due to this context, women try to take part and remain in the labor market, to provide economic support to their families and cover their home expenses. In this way, it is necessary to involve them in the labor market, support their families, and contribute to community development.


That is why through the Taller Emprende en Línea ("Start your business" online workshop), we provided to 20 women in Yucatán human development and business knowledge. So that we empowered them to get self-confidence and to be able to create and manage a micro-enterprise in the short term. Consequently, these women living in Yucatán will create new job opportunities to include them in a formal and productive job through self-employment. They improved their self-confidence and self-esteem and encourage entrepreneurship culture to support community development.

Activities:
The training began on January 25th with an end date of February 19th, 2021. As a result, 20 women living in Yucatán created a business plan project to help start or improve their productive activities.

Women's projects: Grosery store, chothing, boutique, dance academy, embroidery, marketing agency, desserts, spa, hotel, gift shop, crafts, food sale, mortuary, children's books, restaurant, craft workshop.

We reiterate our gratitude to GlobalGiving and all the people who believed and supported these women living in Yucatán. All of you motivate us to continue working on this program and for those who need us most.

Kind regards,

Patricia Larios, Director

Dear friends:

 

According to the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the Latin American and the Caribbean countries face the pandemic from a weaker position than the rest of the world, and women have been the most affected by this situation.

Self-employment will be a way to get them involved in the workforce, so they could generate and manage economical resources. As a result, women will be part of the economic recovery that the country will urgently need to face the negative impacts of the economic crisis.

Women living in Yucatan, are being trained on line with human development and gender equality knowledge and with business topics, such as administration, marketing, finance, sales, tax, legal terms and corporate social responsibility (beginning date of trainning: January 25th ending date: February 19th). As a result, they will develop a life and business plan project to start or improve their own productive activity.

Consequently, women will be part of the economic boost through the self-employment and will provide new productive jobs that will contribute to the economic recovery

In march 2021, we will send you the final report with the project results. Thanks to GlobalGiving and to all the people who contribute to our project, to support women living in Yucatán.

 

Kind regards,

 Patricia Larios, Director

Dear friends:

In Mexico the informal economy is prevalent by women, furthermore, women have been the most affected by the COVID – 19 crisis in the country, since a considerable part of them, work in the most shocking sectors (such as tourism, clothing, and foods). On the other hand, many of them depend economically on a family member, so they are directly affected.I Due to this context, women will try to take part and remain on the labor market, to provide economical support to their families and cover the home expenses.

In ProEmpleo, we will provide women human development and business knowledge, so they will be empowered to create their micro-enterprise and to contribute to the economic recovery. Self-employment will be a way to get them involved in the workforce, so they could create and manage economic resources.

We promoted the project through mailing and our social networks, and we did an alliance to gather the target population. The next step will be to carry out the project in partnership with another investor to generate a greater impact and scope.

We thank GlobalGiving and all the people who believe in our project to support women living in Yucatán. All of you motivate us to continue working in this program.

Kind regards,

Patricia Larios, Director.

If the money we donate helps one woman to change her life, those funds are well spent.

 

Dear friend,

In life-and-death matters such as the covid-19 pandemic, a focus on financial matters can seem misplaced. But for the world’s poor, the financial impacts of covid-19 can be devastating and far more immediate.

In Fundación ProEmpleo D.F. we continue to work very hard to raise the missing funds for the project, and we are confident that the business training that we will offer for Yucatan women will promote their desire to be resilient.

While, we trained a group of beneficiaries, our interest to impact in business education to more women, will be related to the goal of teaching them how to develop their economy and provide them the tools for their empowerment as humans and use their skills to become community leaders.

We are promoting the project through the following means:

  • Promote the project through posters in our facilities.
  • Discuss the project with entrepreneurs and businessmen who want to join the cause.
  • Through social networks and the web.

Our next step is to seek a strategic alliance for the project and find other contributions to work together with GlobalGiving and together complete the project objective

We greatly appreciate the contributions he has made to our cause and invite you to help us spread the cause with his family and friends.

Thank for trust in Fundación ProEmpleo D.F. and to be part of the dreams of the women who want access to a productive life.

Regards,

Patricia Larios, Director.
