For over a quarter, we have expected to solve financial restrictions within local and foreign banks derived from sanctions applied to the Venezuelan Government by the US Administration. Such situation has impeded to receive donations already given to GlobalGiving from our generous donors for our project to advance. With that in mind, along the last few years we've accomplished various programs as committed, focused on inspiring, motivating and preparing with personal soft skills and financial contents an important number of beneficiaries who have initiated personal businesses and kept these over the time.
However, considering we need to support operations, some processes require investment, beginning by our personnel structure. Nonetheless, as we do not want to reduce the operation, we have found a way to continue, based on the power of the internet and education platforms developed by our global organization and adapted for every geography. During and after the worst moment the Covid 19 Pandemic has presented several variations and it's been changing or surprising us consequently, while we have been exposed and learnt interesting contents, all renewed, which will now be used to reach a new cohort of rural women in the months to come. Such group of women are part of a Wayuu community at Las Marites, a town of the Venezuelan Goajira area called located beside a natural lake in Zulia, a Venezuelan western State.
We have already established contacts with a noon who commands and is the engine of a variety of initiatives to improve the quality of life of a very poor indigeneouscommunity, She has provided them with tools and artisan knowledgeg to build small businesses and the promise of continuing their education with our financial and entreprenurial content has been welcome while it has opened new opportunities for them to continue strenthening their preparation to initiate sucessful businesses.
Our plan contemplates to initiate these remote classes fro March on, trying to begin the plan during the celebration of Women's Day .
It is very important to highlight that our job had not been possible without support and trust on our objectives provided by our donors, being imperative for them to know that their funds will be invested properly to expand our impact on the most needed communities as these rural indigenous tribes are. Without their wise investment for the lesser benefited our work couCivud 18ld not simply been possible.
