Fundación Avanzar seeks to align itself with the mission
pursued by UN Women, which is to promote gender equality and empower women to accelerate progress toward improving the conditions of their lives. Investing in women’s
economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication, and inclusive economic growth.
To this end, Fundación Avanzar has implemented a numbers of initiatives which support Social Economy Enterprises formed by women, also called "Female Economy Enterprises", concentrating on the aspects in which they have most room for improvement: Training within their particular areas of work, on the one hand, and handling business models, on the other hand – both of which are fundamental to increasing the leadership and successful participation of women within the family economy.
Avanzar offers the female participants support in a variety of formats such as chats, coaching sessions, and mentoring. In addition to university courses, online tools like Zoom or Facebook Live have proven to be extremely valuable communication tools.
The program we offer provide their beneficiaries with the opportunity, the knowledge, and the resources to create for themselves a productive and prosperous life, complete with self-determination, dignity, responsibility, and freedom. We are a dynamic, innovative, and efficient non-profit organization generating concrete contributions to under-privileged women and their families.
