Graduation in El Alto

Wednesday July 31st, 2019

In July, 200 women celebrated the successful completion of the semester of our program “Technical Training for Migrant Women in El Alto”. The mayor of El Alto personally handed over the certificates of the course to the female participants. During the past five months, the women attended classes in which they learned to repair cell phones or paint walls, for example. In this way we want to enable the women, who mostly come from rural areas and emigrated to the city of El Alto, to have their own income and be economically independent. Especially women in rural areas of Bolivia often lack opportunities to receive an adequate professional qualification due to insufficient education, premature pregnancies and / or household responsibility. Without it, however, it is not uncommon for them to have a marginalized life on the margins of society.
