With our Partners in Chimbote

The WGC team is now fully on the ground in Chimbote! Our partners with Pushaq Warmi surprised us with a mini serenade outside our hotel, complete with lovely gifts of roses. The streets have been alive w revelry, as Chimbote is celebrating its 107th birthday as a city with a multi-day fiesta. We had dinner together then visited w Maribel, a member of Pushaq Warmi who runs a kiosk tiendita in the city center. Earlier in the day, Sandra and Ruth, of PW also, interviewed us about our work and projects on their radio show. This dynamic duo uses their weekly spot to honestly communicate issues facing women in Peru. The topic they tackled yesterday was maintaining confidentiality around personal health conditions such as HIV/AIDS and how to fight discrimination that can occur after one is diagnosed as HIV positive. Today we are holding team planning sessions around the weekend workshops we will hold about production and marketing of the women’s developing collective bakery business.
