The “Solidarity Window” project consists of replacing the windows of the residence that refuge young mothers and their children.

The “Solidarity Window” project consists of replacing the windows of  the host residence that supports young mothers and their children.

The last intervention on the windows was many years ago. They are aluminum windows, however they are all in a worn state, allowing moisture, cold and rain to pass through. Substantial intervention is needed to replace it to a solution that meets current needs and guarantees the health of the mothers and children we support, as well as their own safety.

Goals

With this project we aim to provide these young mothers and their children with better living conditions that will translate into greater success of the educational and integrative project, ensuring that they benefit from the best conditions of health, comfort and safety.

Right now, our priority is to replace the windows in every room, as it is the most private and welcoming space every mother and child has.

After this first phase of the project is completed, we will move to a second phase, which will consist of remodeling the windows corresponding to the common spaces of the house.

Why do we need your help?

The participation of everyone in this project is considered essential. The resolution is to find partners and friends who will join this cause and help us make this project possible.
