A project that unites social and labour insertion of women at risk of social exclusion with support for school education of children in a situation of vulnerability. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

Groups
The work done with women is focused on the recognition of the value of each person, promoting personal accompaniment and adequately addressing the individual needs of each woman, respecting the time and process of each one.
One of the main objectives of the project is the development and emancipation of women, in addition to their family welfare.

To achieve this objective, through the volunteer project, we work to accompany the women and their families. 

Activities are carried out aimed at:
  • Promoting self-esteem, confidence and self-knowledge. 
  • Improve women's employability. Workshops are held here that focus on specific training and the expansion of their knowledge.
  • Sections to strengthen the inclusion process.

You work too:
  • Personal development and empowerment. 
  • Literacy classes. Spanish classes are given to women who do not speak the language. 
  • Work orientation. 
  • Dressmaking, creative sewing and jewelry workshop. 
  • Socio-health workshop.
The most important thing is the attitude and willingness of the volunteers to be part of the immigrant women's empowerment project in Valencia, Spain.
