Institution: Maré Development Networks
Location: Rio de Janeiro
The aim of this project is to expand a comprehensive vocational education program for women in Maré’s socioeconomic context, to help them overcome the multiple barriers (objective and subjective) they face when trying to join and remain in the job market.
The project will run:
– vocational courses to improve participants’ financial autonomy and boost links with the region’s economic dynamics.
– to develop strategies for working and generating income;
– a team of professionals in the areas of law, social welfare and psychology will also provide interdisciplinary support to help participants uphold their rights.
