Next Saturday, November 6, the Civic Center for Peace in Santa Cruz will be the site where dozens of young women from the province will discuss the problems, needs and vulnerabilities that they experience in the province, and put together proposals together to transform them.

“These meetings are a forum for dialogue and collective building in which young women can share their vision and perception of the national reality and contribute with a document that we have been developing,” explained the Vice Minister of Youth, Margareth Solano.

“We want to do a specific chapter on what young women living in our country think and visualize in order to create an impact,” she added.

To participate, you just have to be between 12 and 35 years old. You can sign up at this link. The activity will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the organizers have resources to help with transportation and food for participants. Write a message to 8376-9848 to clear up any doubts.

The idea is to go beyond brainstorming about problems. We want to generate possible proposals to develop and even identify the players that could be linked to these actions,” the  Santa Cruz CCP’s youth manager, Mercedes Hidalgo, specified.

Hidalgo stressed that the meetings are regional so women from the province will be able to lay their difficulties on the table, and so will the other regions.

Guanacaste is one of  four provinces that will have these meetings during the month of November. The others will take place in Limon (Limon), Puntarenas (Garabito) and Alajuela (Aguas Zarcas), places where there are also Civic Centers for Peace. The activity is being promoted by the Vice Ministry of Youth.
