Summary

Gender violence in Puerto Rico is reaching its highest level. Recent fatalities have put in evidence the lack of support by the system and the fear of the victims to look for help. This program seeks to empower women both personally and professionally. Through various workshops, seminars and classes we seek to reinforce and focus on their strengths and talents in the various areas of life.

Challenge

According to the ACLU, Puerto Rico has one of the highest rates of violence against women in the world. To this date, 6 women have been murdered in Puerto Rico. They are struggling every day demanding an end to the permanent state they live under as mothers, workers, and students.

Solution

Education is the key to empowering women. Providing them with the tools for total personal, social and economic development contributes, without a doubt, to reinforcing her esteem, her self-confidence and her total optimum development as an individual. This program will provide the education, guidance and support necessary for our women to take the reins to have a better life. This first phase will be focusing in their self-esteem and self-defense.

Long-Term Impact

It will accelerate efforts to eradicate poverty, achieve food security, fight against diseases, improve the quality of education, increase opportunities for decent jobs and improve environmental sustainability, which are all essential areas to face the challenges facing the world today. We believe that by empowering one woman you are actually increasing the changes to be empowering a whole community and a country. Women is the base of family and society and have earned equal opportunities.
