Welcome Silvia Tum to Abriendo Oportunidades!

By Alejandra Colom | Country Director

Silvia Tum
Silvia Tum

It has been a dream of ours to build strong networks of mentors that can make Abriendo Oportunidades a sustainable strategy in Mesoamerica.  We are finally working towards that goal! We invite you to join us welcoming Silvia Tum as new Abriendo Oportunidades program director.

Silvia is a young Kaqchikel woman with degrees in social work and gender studies.  She speaks Kaqchikel, Spanish, and English. Silvia is not new to Abriendo. In fact, she is one of its oldest members:  in 2004, Silvia was part of the first cohort of adolescents who participated in Abriendo's pilot program. At the time, she returned to school, finished her secondary education and participated as mentor with Population Council for a couple of years.  She is now back, after a few years as a consultant and also as fellow with the USAID mission in Guatemala.

Silvia will lead efforts to strengthen mentors' networks in Chisec, Totonicapán, Yucatán, and other regions where young women are organized and implement the Abriendo model. She and I will share this page and we hope to bring updates on scale up activities very soon!
