Agenda - Women Of Almere
With great joy and satisfaction, I want to share with you that my first book "Latin Women of Almere" is finally coming in three languages. Please help us in this crowdfunding campaign that I started to cover the cost of designing and printing the book by sharing this campaign on your social networks, or by ordering the book “Latin Women of Almere” here in advance. Every grain of sand counts. If this campaign fails, the money will be refunded to everyone. This is a social-cultural project.

With this book, I want to emphasize in a visual and narrative way the role of migrant women in this Dutch society and show how we maintain and transmit our identity, culture, and traditions. The stories of the immigrants in this book “Latin Women of Almere” depict the stories of so many immigrant women around the world.
I trust that the content of the book and the website will serve as motivation, inspiration, and hope for anyone who lives far from their country, special migrants in the Netherlands as to raise awareness among those who work or interact with immigrants so that they can have a better understanding of the experiences and the reactions that migrants have.
" Meetings between worlds " in the week of "Diversity and Inclusion" 2020.
The week of 5 to 9 October 2020, the corridor C of the municipality of Almere will be filled with color with the first photo exhibition "Encounter between Worlds" representing the diversity of our city of Almere.
The cultural and historical background of 8 women from Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Panama, Myanmar, Cuba and Suriname who are part of the pilot project "Women of Almere" will be presented. This project aims to highlight the importance of the role of immigrant women and how they maintain and transmit their culture and traditions. It is also a kind of research on issues such as emancipation, integration, interculturalization, acceptance, identity and diversity
In addition to the photographs, there is a brief anthropological description of the traditional clothing they wear. These clothes are important for a culture, they are part of its identity. Through the typical traditional clothing that a person wears, one can recognize where they come from, what their history is. For them to communicate and share culture and traditions in this way is important not only for their own children, but also for all the people around them.
