Madrid, January 20, 2022.
More than eight hundred women and minors will be direct beneficiaries of the international cooperation programs that the Amaranta Solidarity Foundation will develop throughout this year, continuing its work to improve protection and access to rights of women in situations of vulnerability and/or in contexts of violence in impoverished countries through its Cooperation area.
Specifically, these are 6 projects, which will be developed during the 2022-2023 period in South American countries (Colombia, Bolivia and Peru); Africa (Togo and Cape Verde) and Asia (Cambodia). The actions are financed by the governments of the Balearic Islands and La Rioja as well as the Madrid and Valencia City Councils.
Through these interventions, the Amaranta Solidarity Foundation supports its local partners in aspects such as the empowerment of women for their physical and psychological recovery and social and labor insertion, as is the case of the project that is being developed in Phnom Penh (Cambodia), on the Asian continent. A total of 49 women and 18 minors are direct beneficiaries of this initiative, which is financed by the General Directorate for Cooperation of the Government of the Balearic Islands.
In South America, the Foundation currently has three projects. Thus, since 2020, actions have been carried out aimed at reducing the rates of poverty and social exclusion of women in prostitution environments, victims of violence, trafficking and sexual exploitation through the use of new technologies and integrated itineraries and personalized in Colombia. It is an intervention of which 250 women from the Colombian cities of Bogotá, Bucaramanga, Pereira and Virginia are direct beneficiaries. The Government of La Rioja, through its International Cooperation and Agenda 2030 area, finances these actions.
