Description

In 1985, the once bustling economy of Golfito, Costa Rica, collapsed when banana companies left the area. The University of Costa Rica and UNIFEM are now organizing women in workshops to increase literacy skills. They also provide training in the areas of discrimination and legal rights in an effort to empower women to take action to improve their lives. Produced by UNIFEM.
