Located in the hillside area of Commune 1, the National Women’s Corporation – CONALDEM created the initiative “Mujer Virtuosa, Ven Aprende y Emprende” (Virtuous Women, Come, Learn and Undertake), consolidating enterprises that transform the social environment of their community and create support networks among themselves.
Its founder, Lexi Galindez, has the objective of training and exploring the talents of women in order to empower them and help each one become a leader:
“We see very empowered women, where they already have their bakery, their clothing store, their workshop. So, I say, it is worthwhile to continue projecting these leaders in order to bring more women and transform them, not only them, but the social environment in general.”
CONALDEM has strengthened many life projects of women living in Commune 1. In addition to providing them with tools for their economic security, it has been fundamental in improving their emotional and family environments.
