The so-called "Venezuelan Project" also included $66,822 for "greater public profile of the female members of the Venezuelan Interim Government."
Blacklock's wrote that the Venezuela Project aimed to "build the leadership capacities: of women in Venezuela. Documents say that budgets included nearly $90,000 for travel, meals, hotels, and flights for 27 women from Venezuela to attend seminars in Europe.
“The project shall aim to achieve the following expected results: Women of the Venezuelan Interim Government and National Assembly are more effective at negotiating and leading high-level diplomacy; greater public profile of the female members of the Venezuelan Interim Government and National Assembly; women are better able to influence and lead the Venezuelan Interim Government’s decision making and set policy,” wrote staff.
$125,000 was also put to Venezuelan legislators, and $5,216 was spent per room rentals for "diplomatic outreach," as well as $1,280 for ads on social media "to amplify communications product visibility."
