In AO we believe effective communication skills and value oriented relationships are key towards achieving impact in any kind of social project.
The work that Abriendo mentors do is very complicated work that needs clear motivations and an integrated group of people that share the same view.
That is why we try to get the teams together to share our experiences, our feelingstowards work, and learn together through different kinds of activities that bring us closer together. These experiences teach us how to develop problem solving skills,and help us find integrated solutions for the problems that affect girls’ vulnerability in the communities where we work.
On the last week of September the Peten team met for a workshop. 29 mentors in charge of 100 communities, traveled 360 km. to Guatemala City, where they metwith staff from headquarters, led by Ceci Garcés, our Education and Curriculum Specialist. We also had some very important guests: AO most experienced mentors, who currently lead research efforts in the Western Highlands, shared their experiences and motivations, and encouraged mentors to work hard to bring Abriendo to more girls across Guatemala.
We feel very happy to share these great news and some pictures from the workshop.
