Social Entrepreneurship Project
The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the support provided by the organisation El Arca de Honduras to its beneficiaries – people with intellectual disabilities – promoting its various activities, including different handmade products, through a social media campaign and a social entrepreneurship fair.
The beneficiaries participate in different workshops, learning how to create different kitchen materials such as tablecloths and mittens, decorations for households such as candles, cleaning materials such as mops, and different types of garments. These products are sold to encourage the personal fulfilment of the beneficiaries, and for fund-raising purposes.
-The Austrian volunteer Emilia Haussteiner is taking part in the Social Entrepreneurship project and supporting the process of the project for eight months.
