About the Women’s Comittee “Laura Smith” in Sacacoyo:

We are a committee of 10 women from the Christian Base Community of P. Mauricio Merino in Sacacoyo. For the past year we have been organizing ourselves and learning to create and think as a group of women while intending to break the barriers that have kept us in marginalization for so long: literacy, shyness, discrimination and the lack of space that we have in which to enrich our abilities and skills in order to support our families and community. Little by little we are overcoming our fear, shyness and low self-esteem. Our ability to organize and believe in ourselves serves as inspiration for other women and our sons and daughters. Through the discovery of creativity and art we are rediscovering ourselves and learning to feel good about who we are as Salvadoran women. With your support we generate alternative modes of income that allow us to develop ourselves from within and to continue building a different image of THE SALVADORAN WOMAN.

  1. Hola, amig@s! How will I pay for these? How will I receive them? I’ve seen some of these cards before, and they’re AMAZING!!!

    • Thanks so much for the interest and enthusiasm! We are sending an email to everyone who orders about payment and shipping after all the orders are in, but it’s looking like you’ll be able to pay by check and the cards will be shipped from the United States sometime the week of November 19. Email cebes@fundahmer.org.sv to place an order!
