2020 – Pakariñan

By |2021-02-22T14:02:06-05:004 September 2020|

Project Description

Rural women in southern Ecuador are often excluded from leadership roles and participation in civil society. Family violence can exacerbate these issues. At the IAF, we support community initiatives to strengthen governance and provide leadership opportunities for underrepresented groups. Our grantee partner, Red de Turismo Comunitario del Austro Pakariñan (Pakariñan), works with local community organizations and schools to expand social and leadership opportunities for women and girls. Through civic engagement and leadership education, Pakariñan is fostering inclusion while empowering women.

This grant is part of the IAF’s broader Women INvesting in Growth and Security (WINGS) initiative to empower women as business and community leaders.
