Women are underrepresented in STEM careers and this problem worsens when we this women come from disadvantaged settings. Uruguay is a renowned hub for Technological companies and they seek constantly for new hires, unemployment on this sector is almost zero, when unemployment in the country rises nearly to a 10%.
ANIMA's program links the world of education with the professional world, and the opportunity to learn while working through paid internships at local top companies. This dual education approach tries to respond to the two realities of a large number of the population not finishing high school and the high youth unemployment rates, by connecting the student to the labor market early on and dialoguing with the business sector to align education with market demands.
ANIMA firmly believes in the potential of our youth, and the transformative power of education and quality work in the quest for learning. By providing a safe and free space for our young girls to learn skills that are demanded in the work space today, and that satisfy their interest and needs, we are contributing to increasing their chances of finishing high school and reducing the unemployment rate in Uruguay. Yearly we support over 200 young people in our program.
