Project “Women+”, Cabaz di Terra

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

Founded in 2011, Cabaz di Terra (CdT) is a guinean organisation that promotes collective practices and solutions aimed at local producers and consumers around networking solidarity strategies. CdT has consoli-dated its experience in Solidarity Economy over the past years, promo-ting human dignity, citizenship and self-respect through viable alternati-ves for the production and marketing of products from Guinea-Bissau. The 'Women +' project seeks to empower the economic and social emancipation of vulnerable women through the artistic creation and economic recognition of traditional Guinean weaving. This action — implemented in Bissau, Biombo and Cacheu —, focuses on a public that is largely excluded from access to profitable economic activities, women who are "iardadas" (inherited) from the Cacheu and Biombo areas, fostering their technical, economic and organisational capacity in a field with strong economic potential: weaving.

ACTIVITIES

This is an estimated seven-day training experience. Activities include:

  • Briefing on both project background and local context;
  • Visits to the project intervention areas;
  • Sintado Justo: monitor the organisational structure and maturity of the business model of the target groups and foreshadow a new ser-vice of the CdT structure in the field of advice and support to emer-gent initiatives of solidarity economy;
  • Concrete proposals made by the group of participants (negotiated between both parties).

THIS EXPERIENCE WILL ALLOW YOU TO:

  • Learn about the context of Guinea-Bissau’s labour market, in particular the challenges faced by women;
  • Recognize the importance of using local resources as a strat-egy for entrepreneurship and employability.
