"When ABPD came, I participated in the youth empowerment class. Since we are not hauling water anymore, my friends and I have more time. We decided to do an environmental project, because we are very concerned about what is happening with our mother earth. We saw that no one is doing anything to stop this. Perhaps we are not going to change the world, but the fact that we are doing something is a change itself that will make a difference. We have encountered obstacles, but that will not stop us thanks to the support of ALDEA and ABPD, who helped us to undertake this project."
"After 9 months of participating in trainings led by ABPD, I felt ready to lead them myself. When I led my first training I felt very nervous, but as time passed it became something that I liked and now I do it with a lot of joy and excitement. Becoming a health promotor has allowed me to set a great example to my 4-year-old daughter. She was very shy before and now is more sociable and communicative. My husband has also been a great help to me, since he motivates me to continue being a leader for my group."
