The WinC is a great organization. The center is a one stop shop for any Women's issue one can think of. The center empowers women to fulfill their dreams through educational, political and economic resources. Many of the people that are helped by the center have never had the self esteem to begin their own business. There are numerous successful Alumni.

The dedication and strive for women's education is something I have seen in no other organization. The center assist women in developing action plans on financing and/or using the centers resources for various educational pursuits. For some it may be college for others it may be a specific trade. The summer program which immerges students in the border region is a well known program; which helps highlight the issues on the border.

The center helps develop self reliance in the participants of the program. It is based on a three step approach. The approaches are circular in nature so none is more important than the other, but simply build upon each other. These three approaches are education, economic self sufficiency and consciousness raising for change. In the education aspect the center has partnered with Dona Ana Community College to bring the participants opportunities to study ESL, citizenship and GED programs. The eventual goal is to bring the participant up to the level of being a self sustaining entrepreneur who can make a difference in the community and pass on the opportunities to other needy individuals in the area.

try to find a way to bring more donations to the organization. The need for this organization is so great in the community that the limited funding handicaps the organization from fully targeting all the needy in the local community.

I have been fortunate to work with the wonderful staff and members of the Women's Intercultural Center for the past ten years. During the past decade Andele Tutors, an organization that offers free after school tutoring for under served children, was able to use the safe, warm, and welcoming community room of the Women's Intercultural Center for many tutoring sessions,a s well as award ceremonies and holiday parties. More recently, with the guidance and support of the Women's Intercultural Center , current Executive Director, Mary Carter, we were able to reach out to over 350 families to develop dialogue and interest in establishing a health sciences charter school in the local school district. Mary and her staff work tirelessly and effectively for the local community. The Women's Intercultural Center serves as a vital and important cultural, educational and social asset to the entire southern New Mexico region.

I have been donating money and items to this organizations thrift store for almost 3 years. I truly believe in this organization's work. All it took for me was one visit to see how they were impacting people's lives in not only their community but the communities in Las Cruces and El Paso. This organization truly makes a difference in people's lives and if you don't believe it, all you have to do is stop by and take a look for yourself. I plan on taking part in their new dance classes coming up in the new semester, and on that point it really surprises me the abundance of classes and trainings they offer here. I recommend that everybody should stop by and see the center for themselves.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

Educating and Empowering women may not be a goal I truly believe in, but it brings me great happiness that they are doing this. Every person and that includes women should have an opportunity to learn new things, learn how to open a small business, and even run for politics. Good luck to this center as they are truly inspiring individuals.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

Because I believe in the center's work and where they are headed.

What would you tell others about this organization?

The biggest thing I have to say is stop by and visit the center and you'll be proud that you did.

I have nothing but great things about this center, the way they treat their participants, staff, and volunteers is amazing. Everyone is treated as a key asset to help create a better community and a better world. They look for input from everyone to help make the areas they serve better. The center also keeps me up to date on the issues going on through not only the nation but the world through their facebook and twitter. The people they have maintaining their facebook and twitter accounts is unbelievable it almost seems like they are up and running 24/7 and stay on top of all the issues. Upon the many classes and services they offer it's hard to decide which is my favorite. Although if I had to choose one it would be their Border Awareness Experience (BAE). They host college students from around the nation to learn about immigration and border issues which I believe is very important as much of the nation does not understand how easily immigration and the border affect our nation. Help this center continue it's incredible work.

Everyday I was at the Center I saw how unbelievably incredibly passionate they were with their participants. It wasn't a job for the staff it was a way to help the community and they showed it everyday. Step into the center and instantly you'll know it's a place you've never seen before.

I have toured the facilities, met with the Director, and spent some time during the holiday season at WIC. The staff and volunteers are big hearted folks with a genuine desire to engage the community in activities that they are working on, specifically empowering women and providing resources in leadership along with their families. I have seen and experienced the greatness that this organization exudes in the community within individuals, families, and women.

This Center does incredible work in helping the community their known for covering all of Southern NM and West TX yet they only have 6 staff members. It's almost unbelievable how much work these people do, but I truly appreciate them for all they have to offer especially when it comes to empowering women. They never stop and that's why I will always support them. When times are tough and the economy started to impact them, they didn't turn away from their participants they were always there to educate and empower the community.
