On behalf of WJI, we want to wish you a happy Mother’s Day!
This Mother’s Day, we are inspired by mothers and all the female role models in rural Guatemala who are fighting for a better life for their families. Their passion to transform their communities and support other women to live free from violence is what motivates our team each day.
Nereida Contreras, WJI’s superstar Accountant, recently discussed what being a mom to her three children means to her:
“I am a survivor of violence. I feel that through my work, I make a contribution toward eliminating violence for other women, toward reducing early pregnancy, but mainly toward fewer boys and women living in a hostile environment due to machismo, because that is what I want for my children.”
If you would like to make a donation in honor of an important role model or mother in your life, please do so today and we will inform them of your gift on their behalf for Mother’s Day.
Thank you so much for all of your support. Happy Mother’s Day!
