Gender-based discrimination is an ever-present obstacle for the women of Latin America. Excluded from the majority of non-domestic economic activities, many women remain trapped in traditional gender roles and never reach their full potential. This is especially true in rural areas where opportunities are even more limited, resulting in many women never finishing high school, learning marketable skills, entering the workforce and becoming self-reliant.
How We Want to Help
Through partnerships with local women’s groups that specialize in identifying and assisting impoverished or marginalized women, Empowered Biofuels will use donations and proceeds from the sale of our products to provide annual educational grants to disadvantaged Latin American women that wish to complete their high school education or pursue a university education.
