Investing in women is investing in the community

19 Oct, 2021

Investing in women is investing in the community

The truth is that investing in projects that aim to strengthen women's economy is to invest in families, therefore, in the entire community, and not only because said economic strengthening will allow a family to break cycles of poverty and violence, but also because women are organizing themselves into production and development networks that identify them as a whole and allow them to share the same criteria of struggle and resistance against discrimination and inequality, in time to offer them opportunities of a new life and also to their families. This gives a deep sense of hope for the future, because it is a response to the need to find solutions to current problems such as the increase in violence, corruption, climate change, armed conflicts, migratory and refugee crises, lack of employment, scarcity of water and basic services, and so many etcetera that take away people's peace. The answer to all this is women: women and environment, women and production networks, women and peace, women and politics, women in business, women artisan development, women leading real changes.

Discover Bolivia's Unique Places

Today I am going to tell you a little about Bolivia. As you know, Bolivia is located in the heart of South America and is mainly known for the Lake Titicaca and the great Uyuni Salt Flats.

What you might not know about Bolivia, is that it is a super diverse country and an ideal place for those who are looking for an adventure in the middle of a natural paradise rich in culture and history as well.

Welcome to Yanawara

Welcome to Yanawara

We live in a consumerist world that creates tons of plastic and waste for most of our activities and purchases and although we can obtain beautiful and high quality products, we live in such a hurry that we do not appreciate the effort of the producers or have knowledge of the impact of our purchases. Most of the times, we don’t know if we pay a fair price that contributes a dignified work or if we really need all of our clothes and we will give them a good use.

The Chiman Bags' Project

The Chiman Bags' Project

I have always felt that dreams are more than just diurnal remains and segments of the unconscious, but what about dreaming while awake? I can say that I’m a bird lover ever since I was a little girl given that observing them would carry my imagination to faraway lands. I genuinely believe that everyone has that special “something”, an image or a sign that affirms us being in the right place, for me it is represented by tropical parrots. When I first read Isabel Allende’s “City of Beasts”,*  whom I consider magical in many ways, I vividly imagined every plant, river, sky, location, and character and I realized that in that process, I was also finding myself.
