Wellpaper Project

WELL: women, empowerment, local, livelihood.
These are the words that sustain this project of social economy. The Wellpaper project recycles paper waste to transform it into useful and beautiful objects. Training and empowering women from the villages develops and maintains a social business unit of great local importance. The workers of this unit acquire a vast knowledge in managing this type of social business and they become agents of replication. Some of them work as teachers in other communities that want to implement the same kind of successful social economy.
Local is beautiful!
