WK Social Worker Participates in “Mujeres Adelante” Initiative


We are very proud of Mayra Lacán, one of our long standing social workers. Mayra has been working with us for over five years, coordinating health and social service programs in our Bocacosta clinic. She is an integral part of our work there, and she is very well liked and respected by our patients and clients. One of her most important initiatives has been helping to form a women’s cooperative which oversees day-to-day operations of the clinic and the maternal-child outreach programs.

Recently, Mayra received word that she was accepted to participate in “Mujeres Adelante,” a prestigious program offered by the US State Department and the Seattle International Foundation. This program offers training to women leaders from Central America on gender-based violence. As a part of this program, Mayra will be participating in a delegation to Washington, DC and Seattle, WA this month.

Please join us in congratulating Mayra!
