Peru: La Ensenada Project

Objective: Insuring professional training for women in construction to reduce misogyny

  • Status

    Project completed

  • Location Peru

The project has been developed to improve the living conditions of single mothers and women at Las Jasmines in Peru, where promiscuity, low professional qualifications, lack of vegetation and sexism are causing violence and precariousness. 

15 to 20 women will be trained and paid to become builders including two trainings on excavating machines. In total, two green parks (200m2 and 400m2) and 200 children will participate in the construction of the parks with gardening workshops.

The project will insure professional training for women in construction, reduce sexism and create a greener environment thanks to their new manual skills.

Partner: Mano a Mano Peru is an association thriving to reduce social and educative problems amongst children, young people and adults coming from diverse cultures.
