Better opportunities for rural immigrant women in Sucre

Bolivia

Justification

Poverty in the country continues to grow, which is why emigration from the countryside to the city is increasing. Women are the main affected by not having, many of them, sufficient education or being illiterate, which makes it more difficult for them to get a job. In the peripheral neighborhoods of Sucre is where this group of women with less possibilities of training and education is located, which is why this support project is proposed to improve their job opportunities through training in trades, food and organizational education always on the ground where these women are located.
