Programs

Program 1- Onboard

Inclusive Economy, Promotion of Economic Development, Local Entrepreneurship and Decent Work.

This program responds mainly to the ethics of Slow Fashion and economic development with a gender perspective, mainly with, for and by women and their families, but this does not exclude male participation.

An inclusive economy is one in which the whole grows and improves opportunities and the standard of living for all. We all win in a more dynamic, more open and more creative economy.

We are aware that, for many years, women have faced inequity in various areas, including the economic one. Recognizing this situation, our foundation has assumed the responsibility of promoting equal opportunities and promoting the empowerment of women to fully enjoy their rights and freedoms without discrimination or exclusion.
