Casa  Cultural  


The   Casa   Cultural   Tejiendo   Sororidades   is   an   independent,   non-­‐governmental   and  
non-­‐profit   organiza:on   opera:ng   since   almost   40   years   in   Cali,   Colombia.   The  
organiza:on’s  emphasis  lies  on  the  promo:on  of  educa:onal  and  cultural  ac:vi:es  
for   children   and   women   from   the   poor   neighborhoods   of   Cali,   with   the   primary  
objec:ve  to  educate  them  about  their  rights  and  strengthen  their  self-­‐esteem.  The  
consequences   of   Colombia’s   decades-­‐long   armed   conflict   and   the   narco-­‐culture  
have   reinforced   Colombia’s   patriarchal   and   machismo   culture   and   have   rendered  
violence   against   women   as   something   mundane   and   socially   accepted.   As   a  
consequence,   many   women   suffer   from   domes:c   violence,   discrimina:on   and  
s:gma:za:on.   In   order   to   counter-­‐act   these   reali:es,   to   contribute   to   a   cultural  
change   and   protect   and   defend   the   rights   of   women   in   Cali,   the   Casa   Cultural   is  
offering  various  ac:vi:es  and  services:  
«The  Casa  
Cultural  is  my  
sanctuary,  and  
everything  I    
know,  I  have  
learnt  here.»
