Note from Winn Wilbur...The Friendship Bridge
(se web site: www.friendshipbridge.org
) is a group of women here and in Guatamala -- it helps provide microcredit for businesses and educate women about health issues and finance...so they can get their children into school.
A friend I met in at New Orleans work week told me about this--and I could get more details from her once in get back on the 21st, if others are interested. The children make wonderful note coards which are sold to raise money for the cause...
blurb :" Friendship Bridge's educational programs truly strengthen our goal of helping women find their own solutions to poverty." They start small businesses ( a bakery, a company which provides food for large meetings and wedding parties, etc...)
so-- look at the site, if you're interested-- and I'll se you all soon!
