Twenty women graduated in Esthetics and Beauty in Atacames

Resilience is the characteristic that stands out in the 20 women who received the professional certificate in esthetics and beauty. On Monday, January 18th, 2021, the graduation ceremony for this course took place at the Women’s Entrepreneurship House in Nueva Esperanza, Atacames Canton.

The Caseres Town Council in Catalonia, Spain funded the realization of this course. The organization Paz y Desarrollo managed its execution. Both entities have continuously supported initiatives aimed at eradicating gender-based violence and building capacities for women.

The future will be more prosperous and secure for them and their families, as having this certificate will make it easier to find employment or start their own businesses in hair salons, beauty salons, and related ventures. CAEMBA has the great responsibility of providing follow-up, support, and strengthening so that the situation of women and their families improves. We are present to help them continue weaving their wings and so they can soar high.

CAEMBA, alongside Paz y Desarrollo, has been working intensively in the Atacames and Muisne cantons to help these women continue building a better future for themselves, their spouses, and their children.
