The Women's Intercultural Center is a wonderful place that allows women and men to learn new skills and to be surrounded by their fellow community. It's surrounded by helpful employees that are always there to help you when in need with anything. It's a place where a person can feel safe and secure and have lots of opportunities to learn new and useful skills. It's a wonderful place overall with wonderful people that are always willing to give a helping hand to one another.

I attended the Border Awareness Experience offered by the Center and I must say exceptional job indeed. I was very impressed at how knowledgeable Saif and Teresa were with Border & Immigration Issues. Every question we shot their way they were able to answer. My favorite part about the Border Awareness Experience was that it showed two sides of the Border Issues. We got to meet and speak with Border Patrol, while being provided a Border Patrol tour, and we got to meet with Pro-Migrant groups and how they view the issues of the Border. With the center's role of being unbiased it creates a perfect opportunity for students and adults from around the nation to learn about the Border. I applaud the Center for the many classes that are offered their as speaking to the participants they highly enjoy them. I couldn't imagine Anthony without WinC been in the mix. They are a truly exceptional non-profit. All my love and prayers go out to the Women's Intercultural Center.

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of bringing a group of my university colleagues on a border awareness experience at the Women's Intercultural Center in Anthony, New Mexico. The week was incredible!! The staff at the center were professional, knowledeable, accommodating, and kindly willing to serve as our teachers, guides, and translators for the week. The community of clients at WinC was inspirational. There was a positive, happy healthy spirit in all of the classes, programs and social events that we observed and particpated in. I have worked as a social worker at many non-profits in my career, and the WInC is truly special. All are welcome, services are directed by the needs of the people served, and staff are happy, open and supportive of one another. It was truly a healthy envioronment, emotionally and spiritually, and I am conviced that is why their programming is so successful in helping their clients meet their goals. We left our week-in-residence at the WInC feeling so inspired, uplifted, and hopeful.

The Women's Intercultural Center opened my eyes to the issues on the U.S./Mexico Border. From touring with Border Patrol, visiting nonprofit organizations, staying with host families, the Women's Intercultural Center provided us with the knowledge that we needed to be informed persons in society. I think that this center is the best way to learn about these issues, and I wish that everyone could experience the border in the way that the Women's Intercultural Center has developed its Border Awareness Experience. The services that the organization also provides with to the women in Anthony and El Paso help them better their lives. They provide services for women so that the women can get ahead in life. This truly is the best organization I have ever worked with! I am confident they will continue to do wonderful things for the world.

This is a wonderful place. They empower women and help them to learn a skill, but it is much more than that. They help women connect with other women, giving them a community.

I stayed there for a week while we learned about border issues. Several varying viewpoints and perspectives
were presented and we had small group discussions/reflections about the issues.

I went on a trip with my college to learn more about the U.S./Mexico border and the issues surrounding it. While in the New Mexico/Texas region, the Women's Intercultural Center was nice enough to host us and share with us their experience of the border. While there we were accomodated to food and housing as well as many fun outings and informational tours. We were also able to stay a few nights with some of the women from the center in order to get a more personalized experience, which was my favorite part. I learned alot about what the center does for the women (and men!) who come to the center and the opportunities they provide for the women to learn, be creative, and be self-supporting. The women I encountered were strong and independent and excited about all the center had done for them and their family. The staff was knowledgable, curteous, and fun while sharing with us a personal perspective to the issues of immigration and culture which we came to learn about.

The Great!

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

the increase in my openmindedness and desire to learn more about other communities and spreading the word about the communities surrounding the U.S./Mexico Border. I have already spoken on a panel about my experiences with the women cooking, talking, and being within their community.

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

have more interaction with the women of the center on the BAEs. Some of the costs for meals were unclear when we signed up for the trip. It wasn't a problem, but I would've liked to know these extra expenses for outside food before going. Having the students fill out feedback of our experiences with the host families might help them find which families work best. Also, some women I talked to seemed very interested in hosting students and didn't know about it; advertise it more for the women in the center.
