May we introduce: Fourth CAPTA Class July 2011

On July 4th, 2011 a group of 22 women started the CAPTA program from Fundacion Calicanto. This courses group includes 9 women from the district Santa Ana, 3 from El Chorillo, 2 from each Las Cumbres, Curundu, Arraijan and Calidonia and 1 each from San Felipe and La Chorrera.

Thanks to our GlobalGiving donors, two of this women were able to enroll this class!!  We want to invite all our donors to keep on helping so we can achieve our goal of 20 Women sponsored by GlobalGiving donations to be able to graduate from CAPTA.  Talk to your friends about this program that is changing so many lives!!

Edilsa, one of the participants, says that she is thrilled about the course, and until now what she has really liked the Emotional Intelligence module, because it has given her the tools to understand and to deal with pain.

The program initiated in 2005, with one to two courses annually has become increasingly popular. In 2010, for the first time 3 courses graduated and this year 7 courses will graduate!! Further, since July 2011, the inscription to the CAPTA course is now open all year and no longer limited to seminal periods. Women wishing to apply can do so directly at the main office of Fundacion Calicanto (see our Website).

We congratulate the Fourth CAPTA Class July 2011 and wish them all the best!

The warmest welcome: circle of our inner light!
