Sustainable Human Development
The center of sustainable development is the human being, we believe that gender equality contributes with a direct impact to the sustainability of countries where women are mostly heads of families, since it guarantees the quality of life for future generations , we seek sustainable development by focusing on the search for human quality of life in our workshop, empowering women who come to work with us, offering them the opportunity to have an ethical source of employment, legal benefits, and talks that help them in their personal, professional,and self-esteem growth, so that they can fend for themselves and reinvent themselves.We try to make rational use of resources, the integration of women in community participation allows them to share responsibilities with men. By feeling empowered they raise their self-esteem.
