We are thankful with all of you that through your donations help us to improve women's lives in the different communities of the highlands.
We are also happy to tell you that in the last two months we built the first two washer stations that were necesary for all the women in Chiquix because as many of you know, most homes in the highlands do not have electricity or have water. Women take their families clothes to wash them on the ground with limited water or they wash it on a rock. Washing their clothes on a rock or on the ground isn't easy because the only position to be able to do this is on their knees and after wash it during 2-3 hours it is a physically taxing for them. After washing their clothes they leave it out on shrubs or on the ground to dry. The ground is often contaminated with animal feces which causes skin irritation and rashes when the clothes are worn. This is only the beggining because we want to keep building washer stations for all the women in the highlands! We had the privilege to support the women building more than 50 clean-air stoves and also with the help of HSP volunteers 15 women assisted to a knitting class in La Cumbre community to learn how knit a hat. We were so happy to see that they are very interested in keep learining about knitting and we will do our best to provide them more yarn to keep knitting!
These are all valuable efforts that will help the women in accessing and taking advantage of opportunities. We cannot help but be grateful by your continued donations and support. We know we would not make these accomplishments a reality without all your help. We are excited for the rest of this year’s opportunities and we look forward to updating you again.
