Project Rising Women




About Us

Project Rising Women is a nonprofit organization based out of Buenos Aires, Argentina that works collaboratively with the Sol Naciente (Rising Sun) Shelter for Homeless and Battered Women, bringing computer technology and training to the shelter’s residents. The shelter, located on the edge of villa 1-11-14, Buenos Aires’ largest and most dangerous ghetto, is home to ten to fifteen young single mothers who are victims of gender violence or have been living on the street. Project Rising Women has most recently provided a computer center and computer training class for these women, and continues working to be able to better the center and provide services to the shelter’s future residents.
