Patricia commented on Women get together

HI Luisa, Thanks for commenting! It is very important for the activities to be relevant to the women we are trying to help. Therefore, I suggest working with a community leader to approach women and get a sense of what they need. Sports are definitely important and they could be complemented with health and nutrition (cooking classes; first aid; etc), self defense, even finance and technology classes. The objective is to get women to realize that they are a community, they are not alone and if someone hurts them, they are hurting all other women. CREate a space where they can really get together!
