Peru: La Ensenada Project

Insuring professional training for women in construction, reduce sexism and create a greener environment thanks to their new manual skills.

The project has been developed to improve the living conditions of single mothers and women at Las Jasmines as promiscuity, low professional qualifications, lack of vegetation, and sexism are causing violence and precariousness in this area.  

15 to 20 women will be trained and paid to become builders including 2 trainings on excavating machines. In total, 2 green parks (200m2 and 400m2). 200 children will participate in the construction of the parks with gardening workshops.


Location: Ensenada district, Lima

Beneficiaries: 20 women receiving building vocational training.

Duration:1 year

Status: completed.
