We have started with the new school year at our School for Feminist Popular and Political Education of 2023-2024.
With the donations we have received so far, we have been able to jump-start our School with over 40 women from popular sectors in Quito, where we continue with our educational processes based on literacy, knowledge exchange, women's leadership, and co-research.
The School is currently organized around a weekly meeting –half of the group meets on Mondays and the other half meets on Fridays– and depending on the topic of discussion we have plenary sessions, invited guests, or small group gatherings.
One of the highlights of the past few months at the School was Helena Silvestre’s visit to our School. Helena is an Afro-indigenous activist from Brazil and writer of ‘Notas sobre el Hambre’ and we were fortunate to have a plenary session from her, where she talk about the difficulties of being a racialized woman in a context of scarcity.
Moreover, we will continue with our fundraising process throughout the year, to ensure that women from popular sectors can part-take in a sustained educational process.
To all our donors, thank you very much for supporting our process and trusting our organization!Attachments:
