LA CAIXA’S Social Projects department has assigned €20,600 to help eradicate the sexual exploitation of women in Almeria Province.
It has provided the money for a project presented by the Aimur Association for Integral Attention of Women in Situations of Risk which plans to teach ten women who have been victims of sexual exploitation in an official course of Ham Cutting and Pork Butchery which could help them find a job.
The aim is to prove that education is effected and to promote and support the development of occupational projects which are a source of encouragement for a sector which has serious personal problems due to the situations they have lived through.
The women who will take part in the course have, for different reasons, been prostitutes at some point in their lives and are now rehabilitating from economic, health, affective, cultural and social deficiencies. Finding work is an important part of this process.
The Aimur Association has been working since 2001 with socially excluded women.
