Colorado is also home for many immigrants from around the world. In 2015, 537,066 immigrants (foreign-born individuals) comprised 9.8 percent of the state’s population. The Colorado community is comprised of 250,879 women, 249,029 men, and 37,158 children who are immigrants. Though many immigrants are coming to America seeking better economic opportunities, many are fleeing persecution and violence in their home countries. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity of a safe and secure life.
Our workshops are provided in coordination with our partner organizations. We meet with community partners and members and discuss the specific needs of the community. We then tailor the material to meet those needs. Workshops are 2-2.5 hours in length.
Business Education for Ghanaian Women
We are proudly working with students from the IDEA Lab at Red Rocks Community College. These students are developing a prototype of portable, solar powered classroom. This allows us to take the classroom to our female participants and offers the women an opportunity to re-charge their mobile phones at least once a week. This program is developed in partnership and collaboration with the Alliance for African Women Initiative and Dolly Foundation.
