" I am thrilled to be part of this great life experience called 'Millennium Fellowship', because with this program I will be able to improve my leadership skills and meet young people who are interested in making a positive impact on the world through their projects like me. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: “Historia de una artesanía”. (“History of a craft”).
“Historia de una artesanía”. (“History of a craft”) aims to develop a series of trainings so that the artisans of the community "La Esperanza" can increase their sales. The trainings will help the artisans create an attractive image of their products, strategies for online sales and business model. As a result, the artisans will improve their entrepreneurial skills, economy and quality of life. Also with this project we hope to encourage women to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams and make them a reality since the majority of the community are women.
