This project attempts to bring utopia into reality: We want to inspire thousands of girls across Puerto Rico (and the world) to the value they hold within and the universe of possibilities they can unlock to take on the planet! Often, when we talk about women's rights, we isolate and forget about young women and girls. However, if our mission to create change will prosper, we must start young. We must ensure our girls' wants and needs are heard and validated.
During this summer of 2023, Taller Salud's Afrocaribeñas from Taller Salud project will be held its third camp for girls from Loiza and the eastern area of Puerto Rico between the ages of 7-17 years old, entitled: “Dismantle gender stereotypes, yes we can!". At summer camp, topics such as gender roles, knowing our body, menstruation cycle, and reproductive justice, among other issues we need to start the conversation, to drive equality for all.
