Na'leb'ak Center for Adolescent Girls

During the past couple of months we have told you, our GlobalGiving friends, about the Abriendo Oportunidades mentors' networks journey for sustainability and autonomy. Na'leb'ak network, located in Alta Verapaz, is taking big steps to achieve this dream. 

These young women have proposed the creation of a center that will allow them to continue, sustain and consolidate the work they do with the girls and adolescents in the municipality. Their objective is to have their own space, were they can develop diverse activities for girls and women in a safe and friendly environment, where they can meet, play and train for their integral development. The Na'leb'ak Center for Adolescent Girls (as we are calling it for now) will build on Na'leb'ak's previous work on family agriculture. The center will also focus on the regeneration of the social, economic and ecological space of the municipality. The mentors' network has proposed that this headquarters also function as a center for regenerative and responsible production focused on chickens and traditional agriculture. 

Na'leb'ak, in partnership with Population Council and Socialab, is taking this vision closer and closer to reality. We hope that in the next month we will be able to share with you some exciting news about the center and the network. We kindly acknowledge this could not be possible without you, our friends. Thank you for keeping in touch and help us make the Na'leb'ak Center a dream come true. Stay tuned for fresh news on the mentors' work or visit our Facebook page for more information. 

Best regards,
