Impressions of the first weeks in the women’s project in El Alto

Monday January 31st, 2022

In October, we launched our new project “Violence against Women in the Migrant City of El Alto” in response to the alarming increase in violence against women in Bolivia during the Corona pandemic. The project enjoyed great interest among the women in El Alto when it was enrolled. The pictures give some impressions of what the participants in the “Empowerment” component, in which they attend vocational training courses, have been working on in recent weeks. In the meantime, the Omikron wave has also arrived in Bolivia. As a result, many of the participants are temporarily limited in their ability to attend the courses. Nevertheless, we are glad that the courses take place in presence, as we can take better care of the women this way, and we hope that the situation will improve soon.
