Having worked in the field of community development during my professional career, I have more than a familiar understanding of what Women Work Together are facing in attempting to forge new understandings and new roles for women. At present I believe they have a sterling record. Why do I say that? They are gaining support at the community level where support counts most. The organization has garnered political support at the local and prefecture levels of govt. Without that support no lasting effect will be achieved. Last but not least I put money where my "mouth" is - I support the organization financially.

I would increase the focus in management and the application of systems theory at the local level. This is hard to accomplish, but slow and continuous effort will achieve results.

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.

Women Work Together continues to do remarkable work in San Pedro Sacatepéquez, advancing girls' leadership, raising the visibility of educated girls and strengthening family and community commitment to sending their daughters to school. With each working visit, our Guatemalan partners take more ownership of the participatory programs and are now running them year round on their own.

I just returned from my 4th volunteer trip to Guatemala on behalf of Women Work Together in less 18 months. It's exciting to report that WWT is successfully building capacity on the ground in San Pedro Sacatepequez to engage, educate and empower girls and women there around our core campaign: Manda Tu Hija a La Escuela (Send Your Daughter to School). With good reason, I am very optimistic about the terrific working partnership with the Oficina Municipal de la Mujer (Women's Affairs Office) and other San Pedro community leaders.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working directly with girls and women in San Pedro Sacatepequez. Going back and seeing the growth in the girls' individually and their participation in their local Girls Clubs. Working closely with municipal and other community leaders there, seeing them execute the plans we agree on. Seeing the growth in the abilities of the cadre of local outreach workers we've established and trained to carry out the programs with the Girls Clubs and women's groups.

Identify sources of funding, support and mentorship that would support paid staff to maximize and leverage the potential of this terrific working model.
