On November 27th, AIDGLOBAL held its last activity related to the Urbagri4Women Project with Renovar a Mouraria, which was hosted by the Popular Kitchen of Mouraria.

AIDGLOBAL joined Filomena and João, from Ecological Hortas (partners in the Project), a boy from France, and a group of ladies from Pakistan, Brazil, Nepal, Guinea, and the US. This gathering shared some of the uses for herbs and spices found in any supermarket or porch.

The activity included how to make aromatic oils, lavender biscuits and rosemary liquor. It also involved the Traditional Recipes Contest (a prior competition created by the project), in which recipes by Momo from Nepal, and Chicken Bread from Pakistan, were the winners.

The inclusion of these women is done through Education and recreational activities, professional training, access to the labor market, with the fight against discrimination, and in cultural activities that promote intercultural dialogue and a welcoming culture. It involves public administration, social partners, migrant’s associations, and other relevant stakeholders.
