Challenge

The project is developed in Santiago del Estero, which is according to recent studies of the UN (UNDP) one of the most unequal provinces in Argentina. Social and economic development opportunities for progress for families, especially for those where the woman is the head of the household, are very low since access to training, resources and microcredit is almost impossible. Fundacion San Genaro supports women not only to promote their development, but also to ensure their rights.

Solution

Fundacion San Genaro selects underprivileged women to be part of the handicraft and entrepreneurship program. Each group, made up of 15 women, receives all the materials to participate in the 16 practical classes and 6 theoretical classes throughout the program. In addition, each woman receives personalized support and access to an online learning management tool.

Long-Term Impact

Once the program ends, women will have the opportunity to sell their products, thus achieving economic growth that benefits their children and family. The main objective of this program is to empower, restore and regenerate women and improve their status, achieving greater independence and autonomy.
