They are adult women who live in poverty or without other means to support themselves.
We are especially interested in chosing women who used to practice FGM for a living and now want to stop for good. So, in order to be part of this project it’s essential that they commit themselves to opposing FGM.
Thanks to the work of the local organizations that coordinate the project, women are not only trained to produce the bracelets but also learn about human rights and gender equality.
We give women everything they need to make the bracelets and each woman works at home, delivering the goods to our local partners according to their deadlines.
Every woman involved in this project: gets a real and sustainable source of income for themselves and their families, fighting the helplessness caused by the lack of economic independence.
The local organizations that coordinate the project: are paid for their work and they also help us maintain a local network to keep working on other initiatives.
Mundo Cooperante: we generate resources with which we can do our work in international aid projects, especially those that have to do with FGM and early and/or forced marriages.
