[description] =>

Walmart is committing more than $2.5 million in grants to projects aimed at improving the lives of women in Latin America. Through the Latin America Women’s Initiative, projects funded in six countries will help empower more than 9,000 women, building their capacity to rise out of poverty, support their families and improve their communities.  “We believe that when women achieve economic empowerment, their voices are also empowered,” said Eduardo Solórzano, President and CEO of Walmart Latinoamerica. “So not only will they be able to create more stable futures for their families, they will play transformational roles in bettering the lives of women and children across Latin America.” Support from the Walmart Foundation will enable Aid to Artisans and its Colombian partner, CREATA, to develop income opportunities for Wayuu women artisans through business training, product design support, new market development and direct linkages to buyers throughout Colombia and North America.


Current Needs
:  The project seeks matching funding for its scheduled work in Northern Colombia.  These funds are needed to implement additional training workshops, expanding of regional market access and identifying new buyers as well as facilitating buyer visits.
