The new program will reach 500 young women over the next four months, training them in such skills as making jewelry, sewing, food security, secretarial work, preparing natural foods and sweets.

The program target is the young woman who comes from low-income families, the single mother, women who are illiterate or have less than an elementary education, women who live on the street, or in situations of risk.
