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

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been involved with Co-Partnes for several years (with a short break after having a baby). I was hesitant at first to get involved in anything that would require meetings and travel! However, after visiting their project in Ilobasco, El Salvador, I was enamored with the people and the work co-partner has been doing since the organization was founded!

The succes of their program in Ilobasco is best reflected in the leadership skills shown by their members. An example of this leadership is the newly formed group in a new location, Apastepeque, by members of La Nueva Esperanza (Ilobasco). I call myself fortunate to be able to be part of co-partners and the work it does!
