Hilton Foundation. Since 2022, CIMA seeks to increase the general well-being and financial autonomy of young women between the ages of 16 and 29 through in-person and/or virtual trainings on technical, life, digital and empowerment skills, mentorship and support services. Through these efforts, CIMA supports the insertion of participants into the labor market within the hospitality industry in Mexico City.
