Women’s Education Classes Graduate Another Class


Another group of women from an aldea of Santiago, Sacatepéquez completed the series of classes on women’s health with Wuqu’ Kawoq.  This series of classes is 5 classes in total and includes education on women’s anatomy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV/AIDS, Cervical Cancer, Menopause, Family Planning and Contraception.  Upon the completion of the 5th class each woman receives a diploma recognizing her participation in the class.  These women are some of the most hard-working and busy individuals in order to support their families.  They highly value this education and typically have to take off work to attend the classes.  We appreciate this sacrifice that they make in order to educate themselves and their peers to promote health and education in their communities.  Congratulations ladies!
