A project with a soul. “Entre Mujeres” NGO was born in 1999 from a group of deepening faith practitioners in the San Martin de Porres Parish, in the district of Hortaleza. They decided to work for a committed faith with the reality of the neighborhood, helping groups of Roma women, immigrants, women of the neighborhood, with dependents, without jobs or training, and immersed in the marginality.
The solution to this situation was to allow these women to obtain minimal resources, learning a trade and, something very important: Dignity. After considering several options, Entre Mujeres and its President, Maria Luisa Fresno, decided to produce lampshades (sample pictured). Nowadays, after 14 years of hard work SoulEM distributes its lamps through many hotel chains.
Every piece of fabric, lamp and painted tiles are 100% handmade. If you are considering to buy a lamp or present, come here to SoulEM Inserción. This craft workshop deserves it and will appreciate your visit so much and there are many types of lamps. You can even personalise one with your style!
