Happy new year!

Dear friends, 

In my last report I gave you some updates on our plans for 2013. I'm happy to announce that things are moving forward at a steady pace. 

As I let you know in October, a major goal for this project in 2013 will be to expand on our already successful sexual health trainings for women in our partner communities. At the same time, we are also looking at ways to improve our coverage of women's medical care. In our partner communities, we've always provided access to family planning methods, prenatal care, and screening and treatment for cervical cancer. However, the goal for this year is to increase the demand for those services significantly. 

To help with this, we've brought on new staff members and new volunteers, including educational specialists and health promoters. We had our first planning meets for the year at the beginning of January, and the enthusiasm and energy on the team is very encouraging! 

I'm returning to Guatemala next week to do more staff training and also to plan specific activities for the first half of the year. I'll keep you updated, and I hope to have some new pictures soon! 

In the meantime, thanks as always for your support!
