María Claudia Vallejo Ascuntar, Strengthening of the Cultural Identity

Date grant awarded: 05/31/2017

This project is being carried out in the city of San Juan de Pasto – Colombia, with indigenous women displaced from the Awá community. Through this proposal, we seek to strengthen the cultural identity of these women who have been strongly affected by conflict situations. We return to the fabric of the Igra, as it represents the origin of the family and the fundamental role of women as bearer of knowledge. In the same way, through the development of innovation products from the fabric, we seek to contribute to the sustainability and improve the quality of life of each of these women.
