Jobs and Female Safe Space

$15,000 goal

Campaign created 11 months ago
Hi!  My name is Yaret, I am a hurricane Maria survivor and a survivor of gender violence. Throughout my entire life I have been committed in helping women in need. For the past two years, I have been developing a business plan that would help empower other women in my community that would provide them with jobs, both long term and temporary according to their needs. My idea and funds destined to fulfill my dream were taken away by the onslaught of hurricane Maria.

The concept is to create a safe space for women to work, promote self love and self care as well as providing the same for others in a spa like environment. I am $15.000 shy from making my all female space a reality.

I already have the space and steering crew. With the $15,000 I will purchasing furniture, such as massage beds, pedicure chairs and preventive equipment to provide shelter for women and their children in case of another major storm.  

One of the side effects of Puerto Rico’s socio-political and humanitarian crisis, shows massive depression and untreated mental health issues, unleashing an alarming rate on gender violence and suicides. The economical situation on the island has been seized by a US imposed fiscal control board which has been oppressing the poor, making them poorer and forcing many residents to leave the Island and migrate.

Through my self care and spa space, I want to help those women who wish to stay in Puerto Rico, facing the obstacles of this unfortunate situation. Create jobs that adjust to them, where they design their own work schedule. I want to provide a relaxing atmosphere where women can relieve stress from daily routines and recharge energies to continue with their struggles and challenges found in modern day Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is our home, we do not want to have to leave our country in order to survive. That is why my business proposal would create jobs and create an atmosphere designed for women and by women, being inclusive of trans-women.

The people of Puerto Rico need help, my project would bring a big step in centering the forgotten women who reside on the western part of the island, far away from the big city or mayor tourist destinations.

Your help would empower women of all ages. I personally like to thank you for any donation. Thank you for taking the time to read this and you can truly help by making a meaningful change for people who feel they have been forgotten.
