Mercy Weaver of Dreams Program
Mercy Weaver of Dreams Program (Programa de la Misericordia Tejedora de Sueños) is a women’s group that supports the spirituality of non-violence and healing. The Center for Religious Tolerance has helped support this program for two years through our Mini-Grant Program. This project creates an environment in which present day conflicts in Honduras can be resolved non-violently, by training a select number of young and indigenous women in alternatives to violence. The hope is that through the training process, women begin to heal the multiple forms of trauma created by a context of personal/public violence. With the help of our most recent mini-grant, Dream Weavers conducted a series of workshops on Trauma Healing and Alternatives to Violence with women in two of the poorest neighborhoods in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
