Education is the foundation of economic and social development. At Mitz we have mastered a Human Development Program that provides tools for our women to enhance their abilities, while creating a better future for them and their families.
We also donate our profits to scholarships for children with limited resources, in order to assure their educational fulfillment.
We empower women living in vulnerable communities through education and productive endeavors that transform industrial waste into useful products for everyday life, allowing them to generate an additional income for their families.
We believe that when any woman is empowered, she takes control of her life and of her family, creating thus a profound change in their community.
