What these women are doing in and for Guatemala is truly stunning--a humanistic endeavor in the best senses of that bloated phrase. As a Hispanic professor of Engish, I regularly read in the NYTIMES or hear on the BBC about women being helped in Africa or Afghanistan or Indonesia. Less often do I hear about the path breaking work being done for women in Central or South America. Both the dedication and the achievements of Women Work Together should have broad recognition. I celebrate your organization and wish you a brilliant future.

I went to San Pedro with WWT last March (2010). As someone who has traveled a good deal in Latin America, I can tell you the work they are doing is pretty unique. By partnering with a local government committed to changing the lives of rural indigenous women and girls, WWT is able provide real empowerment tools and make leaders of the women and girls they train. In a few short years, they have been able to touch so many lives, providing concrete ways for local people to visualize a different future and change their communities.

I began my work with Women Work Together (Mujeres Trabajan Unidas) more than two years ago as the organization's very first volunteer. To say that my experience with the organization has exceeded my expectations would be an understatement. Not only does the drive and savvy of the team push me and motivate me as a volunteer, but the amazing results touch my heart in ways other volunteer experiences haven't come close. After the last leadership institute, I had numerous mother's approach me near tears saying how grateful they are for everything we've done and how they are happy their daughters are given an opportunity to grow in ways that they were never able to.The founders identified a real need not only in Guatemala but also in the development field in general and I am confident that the organization will continue to grow.

I am now halfway through my first year of law school and just spent my spring break volunteering for the organization a second time. Although the days I spent there were hard work and I can't say that I managed to make up sleep like many of my classmates, I can say I was rejuvenated in a different way. There is a lesson innately different in seeing leadership power, ideas, and confidence grow than in studying how it grows in school. At the institute we are constantly impressed with how thoughtful girls are with their ideas about fostering community growth and how they can be a part of it. Most of all, I think the girls are impressed with themselves and with each other...making the experience more memorable for the girls and the leadership community self-thriving. The girls aren't the only one's who are changed after the institutes...these experiences motivate me through any given school day and will also motivate me throughout my career.

The organization needs more funding and volunteers. The demand for women/girl's support services outstrips the NGO's existing resources.

WWT makes a big impact for a small organization. With top notch workshops aimed at girls and women in one town in Guatemala, it draws in the community and creates a model that could be replicated elsewhere. Part of the uniqueness is WWT works in partnership with the local government and leaders. To see the girls and women before and after the workshops is transformational. They are inspired and empowered to make positive change for themselves and their community. Giving them the opportunity in the workshops to speak their voices, act as leaders,articulate goals and ways to reach them, receive support to stay in school, helps them to make a difference and improve.

Led by a dedicated team of brilliant women, WWT works without a cumbersome hierarchical structure, so I know my funds make the maximum impact. Their grassroots efforts make a huge impact on girls' lives, but more important is how these efforts "trickle up" to benefit the communities as a whole.

I know the women who started this wonderful organization to empower girls and women in Guatemala. I am so impressed with their work and how much the accomplish with so little funding. Even though I'm very limited by the economy now, I gave to WWT because it is people-to-people work at its best. Empowering girls may be one of the most important actions we can take to save our species and our planet.

This is grassroots leadership training for women and girls in Guatemala.
I became involved when I met the mayor and his wife from the city that is the focus of the project. He saw a need for women to be self-sufficient and for girls to be educated and supported the project. When individuals
with leadership training skills and local political entities come together, big things can happen--big changes. This is the kind of project I love to support because the money goes directly to the cause.
