Is a program created to provide an opportunity for families in poverty and socially excluded so they can rebuild their lives, become self-sufficient and come from under the strains of emotional, relational, mental, physical and economic poverty. Last year, together with donors, we were able to impact more than 42 communities in extreme poverty in Costa Rica. We firmly believe that education is one of the most important tools to get out of poverty. Our programs not only seek to impact the lives of the participants, but also their families, communities and our country.
Your contribution and support is extremely important for us. You can give the opportunity to a woman and her family to get out of poverty and achieve who list transformational change and development.
For more than 4 years, we have been creating leaders among those in poverty, social injustice and discrimination. December 31st, 2018 government report shows that Costa Rica has a high share of women suffering from deprivations, including the incidence of income poverty. The report explains that if we were to mobilize men the poverty line of 21.8% would come down to 17%, but if we were to mobilize women the it would reduce to 13%. Also, low educational attainment (60.6%) and the share of women with no one to count on (10%), unemployment rate 50% higher among women relative to men, and the incidence of low pay among women being 80% higher than men, make the programs of TRANSFORMA a solution for Costa Rica.
For every $ 50 per month, 1 woman can join our program for 1 month. With $ 500, 1 woman will receive full education for 1 year. This amount includes courses of work-technical skill development for basic competencies so that they can work, materials for the courses, entrepreneurial training, values teaching, human formation, leadership courses and a follow-up to each one of the participants, by our group of volunteers. In addition, we include child care and food during the coffee break for every woman and their children.
Due to the high demand from women and their families to receive the program and the need for growth we present as a foundation, we believe that your contribution can make a difference and transform lives. We know that this work and impact wouldn’t be possible without you.
Transforma is an NGO that provides a solution for women and families in Costa Rica living in poverty, immigrants with limited options, older adults, and women in social inclusion.
