Providing a space to learn for women with unplanned, unwanted pregnancies, this project by the America Institute team focused on providing skills for these underserved women. The women received training in practical skills to lead to job opportunities for them. Required tools and kits important to their new trade were provided. The team collaborated with VIFAC, a non-profit organization working with pregnant women in Mexico. Twelve women were enrolled in the program, all of whom were pregnant, without work or family support. Training was provided for the women to provide nail services for those in their communities. Once a customer base was established for them, the women are doing well with this new skill.
