This project will empower 100 women as leaders by promoting their fundamental rights and improving their quality of life with human and psychological support that ultimately will lead them to participate in economic life. This year project will involve displaced, victimized by the conflict or violent victimized women who live in neighborhoods Patio Bonito and San Bernardino, urban neighborhoods in Bogota. Women here are facing serious vulnerabilities such lack of basic household services.
Women face greater barriers to access justice and rights.The crimes against women are alarming in respect to sexual and domestic violence and food absence.These situations are accentuated in vulnerable neighborhoods where difficulties related to violence, poverty, and armed conflict-victims are often juxtaposed. Within this context, women, either out of fear, disempowerment, lack of opportunity,or ignorance,assume stereotypes on the role to be played at home or in their community.
This project aims to address the perception that discrimination and violence against women are a normal, by transforming imaginary about the role it should play within a society. Through different activities that address the causes of insecurity and economic dependency and / or emotional woman, FUNDAMIL aims to empower women, while advocating for the protection of their human rights. The project will work to ensure women to participate equally in decision-making and influence their future.
All activities seek to leave a installed capacity in the community, so that later, those same beneficiaries are the ones who can replicate the knowledge and strengthen the social fabric through peer work. The idea is to create support networks and joint operating autonomously, relying on the struggle to cope with adverse situations such as violence against women, domestic violence, abuse, poverty, among others, and, consequently generate a institutional sustainability program.
