Our work would not be possible without the cooperation of other organizations, all of whom help to support our programming and improve results.


Escuela Metropolitana de Formación de Emprendedores, which offers free courses for entrepreneurs in the community.

The program trains women in the creation of artisanal handicrafts and enables them to generate income through the sale of their work at artisan fairs throughout the city.
