Swiss Community in Uruguay
On April 21, 2022, MARE signed a collaboration agreement with the Swiss Embassy, the Municipality of Nueva Helvecia, the Rural Development Society of Colonia Suiza, and the Nueva Helvecia Shelter Social Center, in Nueva Helvecia.
It was framed within the REIintegra program, an initiative that provides, through public-private alliances,the opportunity to generate alternatives and provide solutions to problems such as the lack of employment in certain vulnerable segments of the population. The particular focus is on reducing inequalities of gender.
To this end, the Swiss Embassy donated sewing machines that will be used to train and employ seamstresses in the area, so that they can produce for MARE. Thus reusing rural waste in the area.
