Our Current Project

The communities in the areas Pastoral de la Salud has targeted face huge economic and social difficulties that directly affect the most vulnerable populations, especially children, young people, and women. This year, our project with Pastoral involves starting educational initiatives in two new communities: Santo Tomas and El Paisnal. Pastoral believes that community organization and training community leaders is an important pillar in the execution of work initiatives working towards bettering the quality of life of families with the ultimate goal of realizing the concept of health as “complete physical, mental, and social well being”. 

An important component of this project will also be to establish strategic alliances, referring to coordination between other local actors that are already present in the municipalities such as Arcadias, Minister de Salud, NGOs, and community organizations. We are planning to raise $8,098 (budget breakdown is shown below) to make these initiatives a reality. 

In Santo Tomas, the project is targeted at students and women. The student initiative will train and educate 28 adolescents and the women's initiative will train 35 women in areas ranging from self-esteem to gender equality to HIV. These students will serve as leaders in their educational centers, and these women will serve as leaders in their communities. 

In El Paisnal, Pastoral will be working with primarily young children and their mothers to establish good health practices, such as nutritional eating, mental health awareness, and playful activities. In addition, all the participating children will be enrolled in early health evaluations that will serve as a baseline for their future health.
