Women Empowerment in Costa Rica

The women empowerment program exists to help women overcome tough situations and empower themselves through education and psychological support. The program has different educational modules that improve with the constant work of staff and volunteers. The majority of the workshops are focused on income-generating skills, as to give a lot of the women in the project financial independence. Volunteers in women empowerment are tasked with :

Education: Volunteers can teach skills that are useful to the women in the project. Common subjects include basic financial literacy, entrepreneurship coaching, income-generating side projects, organizational and time management skills, etc.

Psychological support: Some women attending this project come from abusive situations and support is always needed to help them gain confidence once again. The support can include self-esteem workshops or if you have the necessary experience, it can be in the form of psychological consultation.

-Marketing: Volunteers can help to market products made by women in the project and to help the project gain more visibility. Help in marketing can be digital or through traditional means.

Working hours are usually 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday.
