Empoderando Refugiadas (English version)

Since its creation, over seven years, more than 400 women have participated in the initiative, the result of an investment in training, employability, and relocation of families. The project – with editions held in São Paulo (SP), Curitiba (PR) and Boa Vista (RR) – also focuses on valuing diversity and inclusion, and is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), promoting their achievement with the private sector.

Among the pillars of the project are the appreciation of diversity and inclusion. Throughout its history, the Empowering Refugee Women project has formed women with disabilities, chronic diseases, and special needs. The participants also represent LGBTQI+ and 50+ diversity groups.
