March Field Visit

Women Work Together came to San Pedro Sacatepéquez this month first to do two weeks of research and evaluation in 14 villages. Secondly, we are applying what we learned to workshops and institutes for girls, parents, and teachers from the schools we visited. Thirty-five girls who are now in Level 2 of the Leadership Institute gathered on Thursday for a day of activities that reinforced and advanced the work we began with this group last year.  It was exciting to see how much they’ve matured and grown in personal confidence since our last visit. Each has participated in one or more of our core projects – Family Reading Time, My Mother’s Life, Big/Little Sisters – and had a chance to share what she’d learned and consider what the experience meant to her.  Themes of leadership, education, gender and community were woven into the day, with the girls exploring these topics through different means, writing and illustrating some of their mother’s stories, making puppets and reviewing new books.
