en Limones, Cuba 

A Cooperative for Women in Rural Cuba in Medicine, Agriculture, and Science.

This project is on Women's Rights in Cuba and how social developments can help improve their lives through gender equality, new sustainable agriculture and medical experiences all through women-led cooperatives in rural Cuba.

Challenge

The challenges that arise from making a cooperative in Cuba is managing it internationally, seeing if members will contribute after initiation and how the government will react to the success of these programs.

Outcome

To strengthen the collaboration of female and domestic workers through cooperatives in Cuba’s workforce, increasing social development and women's technical skills in their area of expertise within the cooperative through courses.

Parsons School of Design has offered students innovative approaches to education since its founding in 1896.  Today we’re the only American art and design school within a comprehensive university, The New School, which also houses a rigorous liberal arts college and a progressive performing arts school. Our undergraduate and graduate programs, offered through Parsons’ five schools, immerse students in focused training, interdisciplinary inquiry, and practice-based collaborative learning. Here creators and scholars master established art and design fields and advance emerging ones while studying a range of university disciplines.
