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 offers classes in Human Development, Physical Well-being, speaking English, and Artisan and other Trade skills – 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 a program that feeds children in school – food that will help them focus on their studies. Reaching two schools in Gastelum – an impoverished neighborhood just outside the Cabo San Lucas tourist area – thousands of meals are prepared and served each month by almost 200 volunteer mothers. 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.
