The art of being a woman

By Beatriz Gandara | Project Leader

Being a woman is synonymous with resilience, strength and, above all, confidence: confidence in your own skills and abilities as a woman.

Our academic mentors (former scholarship recipients) are the greatest example of combining the vision and ability to do many things at the same time, including studying, working and dedicating time and responsibility to the book club.

They also have great emotional intelligence to build networks and make the scholarship members of the book club feel motivated, as well as identify with our purpose, making other girls and young women want to join.

The academic tutors have the will to not give up and see adversity as the best source of opportunities. With much love and dedication, they look for alternatives and routes of change so that the scholarship recipients improve their personal and academic quality of life.

The objective is that they know and develop the talents and strengths they possess; that they learn to trust in the resources they have, but above all, to trust in themselves, because only then will they be able to reach their proposed goals and fight for those ideals set by their own vision.

The objective of the tutors is to develop the habit of reading in the scholarship students, to draw smiles on the face of each one of them, and to provide them with the book that will make it possible to develop their creativity and imagination, traveling through reading to other places and learning about different cultures. This is... “the art of being a woman”.

PS: This April 26th we invite you to the Voices for Education Congress, Testimonies of Change in Guatemala, a chat with our former scholarship recipients where you can learn more about their testimonies, their experiences and how the scholarships work. A way to see, with full transparency, the benefits of supporting this fundraising for the young girls of Guatemala. See you then!
