The Story

EVENT DATE: Mar 08, 2017

This International Women's Day, join us to move women forward and raise funds to support our women’s health programs by March 8!

 

This year for International Women's Day, we want to do something different. You can celebrate this special day by making a donation to support women's health education and services. Though it is an easily detectable and treatable disease, cervical cancer remains the most lethal cancer among women in Guatemala. Less than 10% of the population is screened every year.

 

But it doesn't need to be this way.

 

A woman screened just once in her lifetime reduces the risk of cervical cancer by 25-36%. In 2017, we plan to increase our women's health programs to help our artisans get screened. Give access to basic health education and cervical cancer screenings that can save a woman’s life. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to fund this program in 2017 and with your support, we can make it happen!
