Centros De Desarrollo Para Mujeres
The Sarahuaro Center for the Development of Women is at the core of what we do: empower women to make strong, self-sufficient choices that will carry their children out of poverty. “The Center,” as it is known by women of the area, offers classes in English, human development, physical health, fitness, crafts, aesthetics, and woodworking - skills that prepare women to support themselves and their families. It also provides secure childcare for children of all ages while their mothers learn.
Feeding Bodies and Minds
La Cocina De Los Niños
Young bodies and brains need adequate nutrition to learn and be successful. “The Children’s Kitchen” is based in Escuela Primaria Federal Leonardo Gastelum school in Leonardo Gastelum near the main tourist area of Cabo San Lucas. 17 volunteers (all of them mothers in the area) cook 350 healthy meals/day for children at the school as well as a neighboring school. Children in the program are monitored regularly by a trained nutritionist for improvements to their overall health as a result of the program.
If you know how to take advantage of all the work and emotional teachings here at Sarahuaro, you will have the tools as a woman to get ahead with your children.
