This year, one of the women chosen by her peers to help lead our programs as a promotor was elected mayor of the community of Palima, Tecpán. She is the first woman we've seen elected mayor in one of the areas where we work. The community recognized the leadership skills and knowledge she developed through our empowerment program, and they chose her as the person best qualified to lead them forward. We're proud to be part of her story and to be able to support the people we work with as they fulfill their dreams in many different ways.
