Mujeres Con Exito, the training branch of Casa Amor, Cuenca’s women’s shelter for women experiencing abuse, raises funds to help women achieve independence from their abusers. Mujeres will be holding its garage sale soon. The next few garage sales will be dedicated to installing a canopy in one of the rooms at Mujeres Con Exito and repairing the canopy in the room which already has a canopy.
These canopies help regulate the temperature for events held during the day. Mujeres Con Exito’s future plans include offering meeting space to organizations and groups with the Mujeres ladies providing catering. This valuable training will help these women gain skills that can translate into full time jobs in the community. Having a space that is comfortable will help increase use and demand.
The quantity and quality of donated items are what will make this garage sale a huge success.
