Review for Co Partners Of Campesinas, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Co-partners of Campesinas (Co-partners) is a Mighty Mouse of NGOs. It achieves the most with the least cost. Founded by people who lived and worked for years in El Salvador, it is staffed entirely by Spanish-speaking volunteers who pay their own way. Co-partners' projects are conceived and led by rural women themselves. Co-partners supports these women in achieving their own goals, such as starting an apprenticeship program to help young people remain and work in Central America. It enables children, especially girls, to stay in school by providing supplies, uniforms, and money for transportation. It provides and equips a facility for training in sewing and tailoring, enabling women to earn a decent living. It works to help women learn to earn money and further their children's future by educating them. Co-partners is the opposite of the charities that spend most of their money on fund raising and administration. Every cent it receives goes to help rural Central American women improve their lives and the lives of their children.
