Weaving workshop for “weaving hope and stitching up hearts”
The project is based on building, equipping and operating a sustainable weaving and sewing workshop for 20 women - most of which are victims of abuse and family violence, unemployed, without academic training (some are illiterate), and living in the Egipto neighborhood in Bogotá. They currently sell candies on the street and on buses, and sometimes are engaged in theft, mugging and selling drugs. The aim is for these hand-crafted products to be sold mainly to foreign tourists in the Egypt and Candelaria district, and to the general public.
