Not just cooking, baking and stitching

Nuestra coordinadora en entrevista con la Radio San Andrés – uno de los medios para promocionar el empoderamiento económico de mujeres.
More than 300 women have already registered for the vocational courses that our project against violence and environmental destruction is offering in the new semester. Cooking, baking and sewing are still the most popular courses. However, thanks to the intensive public relations work of our project team, more and more women are willing to take an interest in activities other than the traditional ones, which offer them better economic prospects. For example, people with basic construction skills are in high demand in the current building boom in El Alto. We are therefore delighted that we are now able to offer an introductory course in this area in collaboration with the Bolivian Association of Female Construction Workers. 20 women have already registered. In addition to manual skills, the women will also learn how to deal with conflicts with their male colleagues in the workplace and how to enforce equal pay for equal work.
