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.

"Encuentros entre mundos" en la semana de "Diversidad e inclusión" 2020.

La semana del 5 al 9 de octubre del 2020, el corredor C de la municipalidad de Almere se llenará de color con la primera exposición fotográfica “Encuentro entre Mundos” que representación de la diversidad de nuestra ciudad de Almere.

Se presentan los antecedentes culturales e históricos de 8 mujeres provenientes de México, Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Panamá, Myanmar, Cuba y Surinam que son parte del proyecto piloto “Women of Almere” que tiene como objetivo destacar la importancia del papel de las mujeres inmigrantes y cómo éstas mantienen y transmiten su cultura y tradiciones. Asimismo es una especie de investigación sobre temas como la emancipación, integración, interculturalización, aceptación, identidad y diversidad

Además de las fotografías, hay una breve descripción antropológica de la ropa tradicional que portan. Estos trajes son importantes para una cultura, son parte de su identidad. Por medio de la ropa tradicional típica que usa una persona, se puede reconocer de dónde vienen, cuál es su historia. Para ellas el comunicar y compartir la cultura y las tradiciones de esta forma, es importante no sólo para sus propios hijos, sino también para todas las personas que las rodean.
