Family gardens bloom in Abriendo

By Alejandra Colom | Country Director

Mentor visits family garden

Mentors in Chisec have been working with girls and their families to develop vegetable and herb gardens.  This is part of their initiative to work with girls to generate some income, while expanding families' food choices.  The strategy also includes bringing back traditional plants that are now scarce due to the rapid landuse change in the region. As in other aspects of Abriendo, mentors' play a key role in ensuring that girls and their families get the support necessary to succeed.  

Ongoing donations through Global Giving have helped the Council provide continous support to the Chisec mentors network.  Lessons learned from this experience will allow us to frame upcoming community activities in the department of Sololá, where another group of highly motivated and committed mentors are just beginning girl groups in 20 communities.  

Thank you once more for your committment to their excellent work.
