My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Women Work Together, Boulder, CO, USA
While completing my Masters in Library and Information Sciences I was fortunate to be able to participate in not one but two trips to San Pedro Sacatepequez, Guatemala with Women Work Together. Dr. Ehlers had noticed that a common theme with her girl's groups was a desire to have a library so she reached out to our department. I worked not only with the Girls Clubs, the Women's Groups, and the Leadership Institutes, I was also able to work with the local librarians during my stay to lay groundwork for future library projects in the area. It was an amazing experience and I was able to see first hand how much the community values WWT and the impact they are having on women and girls particularly in the rural communities. My work with WWT reminded me how lucky I am and the responsibility that we have to help out those less fortunate. WWT is not about just throwing money at a problem (although money is necessary for the work) it's about working with the community and empowering members of the community to bring about positive change and owning their own projects and goals.
