Through a feminist vision, we promote the integral health of women and the prevention of gender violence. Based on the conviction that when women prosper, their communities are strengthened, a comprehensive view of the full development of women is promoted, creating work strategies with the communities of Loíza to open doors to the construction of collective power.
