New Project Funded, Donation Complete!

I would like to announce that all remaining project funds have been transferred to a selected Honduran non-profit, Comixmul Cooperative Mixta Mujeres Unidas Limitada ( Comixmul's mission is to improve the social, economic, and and cultural standing of women. Some of the services they already provide include family planning and nutrition and health education, and this is an organization that we were in touch with while in La Esperanza. This donation will make possible a project to provide education in the areas of reproductive health and family planning, to be organized in eight groups of twenty women each.

This donation was especially timely because for the past months all governmental aid to Honduras had been cut off. I am really relieved that although we had to leave the country, that the work that we wanted to see will be carried out, and not only that, but we have contributed to women who are working to empower other women. Thank you again to everyone who has supported this project, even though it didn't go as planned! It was a really amazing experience.
