Empowering Women Through Traditional Crafts

We have awarded our 2011 Ambassador grant to Paola del Prado for her inspiring project “Empowering Dominican Women through traditional crafts”. Paola has traveled down to the Dominican Republic with Eileen Specchio’s nursing trip this past March and was inspired to action after seeing the extreme poverty in the country. Her project involves teaching the women of the poor rural town of San Juaquin a profitable trade (making jewelry) and assisting in the sales of these crafts.

We can’t wait to follow how her project progresses! If you’d like to know more, please visit her website!
