Work with Rural Women’s Groups

In El Salvador we live immersed in a reality of inequality, a reality of injustice and exclusion. Women in general, and especially those in the rural areas, continue to be the target for different forms of injustice in our society due to their conditions of poverty, marginalization, and exclusion.

FUNDAHMER’s Women’s Project accompanies these rural woman with creativity and enthusiasm in processes of empowerment. The Women’s Project aims to construct alternative ways of living in solidarity to transform unjust and oppressive realities and renew the hope, life, and dignity of women.

After 10 years of community accompaniment with the women’s groups, we recognize the fruits of this effort in the gradual growth of the women. We see a growth in their confidence, capacity to make decisions, and willingness to take on commitments with joy and hope. This is our modest contribution to the construction of a new society, because together, we believe that another world is possible.
