Provide Life Skills for 4000 Rural Mayan Girls

Nov 3, 2011

Thank you in 5 languages. Gracias en 5 idiomas.

Four youth leaders from three different regions of Guatemala were today at the office in Antigua editing some videos they filmed to document changes in girls' lives from participating in our program.  We asked them to thank all of our donors and friends in their native languages (K'iche', Tz'utujil and Kaqchikel) as well as in Spanish and English! Each one also shared why they think it is important to support the girl clubs. Each of these young women lead clubs of up to 75 girls each!

Cuatro lideresas juveniles de tres regiones de Guatemala estuvieron hoy en la oficina de Antigua editando unos videos que han filmado ellas mismas para documentar los cambios en las niñas a partir de su participación en el programa.  Les pedimos que nos ayudaran a dar las gracias a nuestros colaboradores y amigos en sus idiomas maternos (K'iche', Tz'utujil and Kaqchikel), además de decirlo en español e inglés.  Cada una también compartió su opinión sobre porqué es importante apoyar a los grupos de niñas en sus comunidades. ¡Cada una de estas jóvenes lidera grupos de hasta 75 niñas!
