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.

From the first presentation I attended regarding what WWT's mission and activities were about, I was enthusiastic. Subsequent to volunteering with them in Guatemala, I joined the Board. My time and money have been well used.
This Mayan community welcomes us and jointly conducts workshops. Our
partners in Guatemala continue to guide and mentor the woman and girls in their efforts toward self improvement.
The results and enthusiasm are apparent, during our time there and as the reports of activities pour in through the year. There is a wonderful synergy in combining the talents of North and Central America. The community's future will be greater as well with educated, empowered girl's and the women they will become.

Each attendee participated enthusiastically and gained experience they could use in their daily lives and work. Everyone appreciated this chance to gain some new skills and build on their social network. They expressed that educated, competent women and girls are key to improving the entire community. They want a better life and see that keeping girls in school, literacy for adults and cooperation though combining the abilities within groups are powerful means to that end.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More resources - money and volunteers. Demand outstrips how many and how often workshops/training are conducted. The local government supports the programs as they are able but need our contributions- financial and our talent. Other communities have asked to have this presented in there villages. Better funding would allow some paid professional staff, strengthen WWT and allow more outreach.

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.

The Great!

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

seeing first hand the impact this org.has on the local women and girls, their teachers and principals; the dedication and support from the local government officials.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

infuse more money so to enable more workshops and trips. WWT has a replicable process and a big impact.
