Peace Corps Volunteers Join Mariposa

Dear Friends,

We are thrilled to announce that we have recently acquired two Peace Corps volunteers that will be living in one of our Satellite communities in Rio San Juan, Dominican Republic. The couple will be working on several initiatives with community members, most importantly strengthening the girls group and helping us better determine the unique needs of the girls living in this rural area.

LunaPads were distributed to a small sample of girls in this community about a year ago. Over the next few months, our new Peace Corps volunteer will be conducting follow-up interviews, distributing more products, and creating training and continuing education programs to ensure that the girls who receive kits are well informed, using them properly and staying in school. 

As always we want to express our gratitude to our partner on this project as well as all of you who have generously contributed to it's success. We are working hard to make sure that this remains a high impact initiative that delivers lasting results. This update also includes a link to our 2011 Annual Report where you can read even more about the success of the project.

Thank you,

The Mariposas
