Last Friday we had the pleasure of celebrating with several women participating in their graduation from the Tree of Hope Empowerment Program. It has been an honor to learn from each one and see the process they have gone through, full of challenges, but extremely committed to themselves. Many congratulations to each one.
Encapsulated nail class.
Yesterday we had Styling class. Here some photographs of the participants with their models. Styling participants will be certified by ADEMM, their certification is valid nationally and internationally. At Tree of Hope we believe that educational and training processes must be accessible to the community, consider all the possibilities within the diversity that unites us, must always encourage the autonomy and development of each one. We know that behind each course there are many dreams, and that is why we try to ensure that enjoyment is always present. We urge you to collaborate with Tree of Hope and make it possible for many dreams to materialize! You can make the difference! You can be godmother and / or godfather of those dreams!
Every Wednesday night we learn English! Today we play! Learning a new language provides tools for personal development and also to stimulate different brain functions that come into play when learning, speaking and listening! But above all, when the learning process brings enjoyment and laughter.
We start our cooking classes for soda / window with our teacher Paola Vega Vargas. By participating in our courses you contribute to reviving the local economy. Our training model is based on taking advantage of internal resources, empowering them and dignifying the work and economic contribution that women carry out in different areas. Through the courses you support the knowledge and years of experience of women in the Western area to strengthen their economic, family and personal autonomy.

Last Friday we had a very different graduation from our Second Phase of the Tree of Hope Program. We had a ride to Las Musas. Women are socially limited to the private sphere, their recreational possibilities are restricted, to enjoy themselves; and many times these spaces are not seen as a priority by ourselves, because socially that is how we have been taught. At Tree of Hope we wanted to break with what is traditionally understood as Graduation and we all decided to create more shared experiences of enjoyment and enjoyment, exercising decision-making power over how and in what way we want to build our daily lives, from self-care... Because each little part of our lives matters. We also thank Tanya from INLEXCA who supported us with transportation and Nele and Manuel who collaborated with us with great dedication in Tree of Hope. It is each and every one of the people who make us up who move and give energy to the organization.
Today we had the Self Defense class for the fellow participants, as part of the conclusion incentives of the Second Stage of our Program. Many thanks to sensei Ericka Bonilla and sensei Antonio Vargas.
