The Fundación Ana Bella created the Ana Bella School for Women’s Empowerment. It provides personal and professional training to women survivors of violence. Self-esteem is fostered through individual coaching and employment placement focuses on “stepping stone” jobs that enable the women to hold positions that involve direct contact with the public. Both aspects of the training promote restored self-confidence in interpersonal relationships and serve as a springboard toward employment.
Fondation CHANEL is supporting this project to enable the Fundación Ana Bella to increase the number of women it assists and thus transform the lives of nearly 3,000 women between now and 2019. The project has two aims: give women who have experienced violence a job and self-confidence, while also turning them into changemakers women encouraging other women to get free from violence and raising a collective level of awareness.
The Fundación Ana Bella was created in 2006 to help and support women victims of violence in Spain.
