MuJER Keeps Growing!

MuJER's Staff

Dear Friends and Supporters,

We have lots of developments to report. The women MuJER serves have been making big strides in their education. Alondra recently became our first client to complete high school! She has also completed a course in culinary arts. Because of this achievement, she has become an inspiration to many women. Over the next year we hope to help three more women earn their high school diplomas and encourage others to follow suit. These achievements are made possible by the organization’s academic scholarships of $50 per semester.   

Our empowerment center continues to serve more women each year. Our basic literacy and computer classes have more than 100 students. The doors of the center are always open to support sex workers in their personal development, education, self-esteem, and emotional needs. MuJER now serves women from nine red light districts in Guatemala City.  

All of these achievements and growth have been made possible through your financial support. In 2013 we will expand the number of academic scholarships offered so that more women can fulfill their dream of earning a high school diploma, while expanding the services, classes, and workshops offered at the center. Please consider the ways you may continue to support MuJER. Those $10 and $20 donations do sustain our work.

Happy Holidays!

We at MuJER, the organization that you supported via Global Giving, want to wish you a happy holiday season and new year.  We also want to take the time to thank you for all your support in 2012.

As you are aware, MuJER (Women for Justice, Education and Awareness) is a nonprofit in Guatemala that empowers women through literacy and providing programs such as accelerated elementary school, vocational training, self-esteem building, and anti-violence programming. We now work with over 500 women in Guatemala, both in the capital and along the border with Mexico.

This last year we were able to maintain and expand our programs thanks to supporters such as yourself. We wanted to let you know how much the women of our community appreciate your support.

Thank you so much!

Thank you

I want to take a moment to just say thank you. I can't say that enough. Founded in 2005, MuJER has gone from serving one student to now reaching more than 300 women per year and we couldn't have done it without your help. In July, MuJER and founder Ana Moraga were recognized by the White House for their efforts toward the development of Guatemala and the community we serve. This honor belongs to you as much as it does to us. It is because of you and your ongoing support that MuJER continues to offer free educational and vocational classes to women in Guatemala.
