Introducing a New Partner: Tonajuyú

We would like to welcome a new community to our network of partner communities: Tonajuyú. This is the first community that we have partnered with in the municipality of Chimaltenango, and we are excited to begin building a strong, lasting relationship with the families and leaders of Tonajuyú! We began our work in the community by initiating a series of ongoing workshops touching on topics ranging from health to leadership, expanding on and adding depth to these topics and others over the coming months and years. Now, we are adding to our work in the community by supporting families with the construction of improved cookstoves to eliminate smoke in kitchens that could lead to respiratory illness and decrease the amount of firewood used in cooking. These are only the first steps to implementing our integrated program in Tonajuyú, with much more to come!
