Friends and Family,
March 8, was International day of the woman. In many parts of the world, the woman suffers and is derived of her human rights and a victim of violence. In Guatemala women have formed organizations and although much progress has been achieved, much is yet to be done. Violence to women is still prevalent in the city and the country side and there are many women who live on the streets or belong to gangs. Prosecution against perpetrators of violence to women is almost nonexistent in Guatemala.
Our celebration at our general meeting for the woman began with prayer, poetry and music.
The male workers decorated the meeting place with great enthusiasm. Each woman was gifted a mayan shawl. We all shared a cake, coffee and laughter. A happy day and moments to appreciate the gifts of each other.
Belated Happy DAY for all the women in the world and especially those who read this blog.
