Women

Women are the protagonists of our time.

 

The recognition of equal rights and opportunities for women allows us to build a much more just,
prosperous and egalitarian society. But there is a long way to keep going. Discrimination,
mistreatment and violence against women are still a tough reality that we have to face and
overcome.


The Good Truck is a project dedicated to these brave women who struggle, day by day, to overcome the limitations imposed by our model of society.

 

A project aimed at the labor insertion of women at risk of social exclusion and, with special attention, to these true courageous mothers who face the challenge of moving their children forward, overcoming all kinds of obstacles.

Women as...

Vanesa

A 33-year- old woman, with a son eight years old, is burdened with income of € 133.33 per month
to a vacant bank home that he was forced to occupy to find shelter for his son after being evicted
of her home. His fear is for the bank to leave it again on the street. He lived a situation of abuse of
his partner, from which he left four years ago, leaving then to work and losing everything. Not even the RMI - the Minimum Income of Insertion that, as they have been told, is paralyzed because of the problem of 155 with the Generalitat.

Joana

This 55-year- old mother has four children, getting three of them going, now living only with the
11-year- old girl. Due to her current unemployment and precariousness, she can not pay rent, so she has been forced to occupy the property she had been expropriated again, to have a place to shelter with his daughter. She suffered mistreatment by her partner, who had secured a loan that the bank now asks for. They survive with the help of RAI - Minimum Income and it ends in September.

possible locations within the municipality, for the self-employment of women in social exclusion of
the same population.
 
With the sponsorship of signatures committed to the defense of women's rights.

And not only They

The billing information of a food truck of these characteristics in Europe and North America,
extrapolated in Spain, offers a margin of benefit that is high enough to offer a decent life to these
women and their children ...
 
... reinvesting, in addition, a part of the surplus generated in different aid programs for other
women in situations of vulnerability or mistreatment.
 
The Mujeres Felices Foundation, specializing in the defense of women's rights and empowerment, will facilitate the training of the cart sellers and will allocate the surplus generated by each of them to aid programs.
