Hadassah Women's Project         


This project reaches over 1,000 women per year, bringing  hope and therapy to those who are abused and vulnerable throughout the city through large conferences and local talks. These  raise awareness of domestic abuse and the need for respect and behavioural boundaries within relationships. We offer free workshops teaching vulnerable women skills (handicrafts/jewellery, pattern cutting and machining techniques) to empower them to generate an income and gain self respect.

This combination of talks and workshops:

  • raises self esteem
  • breaks the cycle of abuse that has been endemic through many generations 
  • builds stronger family units
  • gives hope for a better future

According to CEIMME, 68% of Ecuadorian women have experienced domestic violence.
