This weekend I attended a very special event. But to start off – just my normal winter weekend wear. This is one of my favourite looks that is comfy, cozy and still sophisticated.
Saturday night I attended the 30th Anniversary Dinner of an organization near and dear to both mine and my best friends heart. I was introduced to Sombrilla by her and even spent a time on the board as Treasurer. However, other obligations meant that I could not keep participating in such a committed way. Hopefully, I can make up for this a little by sharing with you about this amazing organization.
For 30 years, Sombrilla has been partnering with communities in Latin America to empower them to assert their democratic, economic, cultural, and social rights. They strive to improve quality of life by addressing needs such as food security, clean water, health care and education.
Sombrilla has worked with several Latin American communities on some very special projects. The Yurac Yacu project in Peru, focused on building a community centre which now houses a local preschool, classrooms for adult vocational classes and local ecotourism businesses. In Tierra Colorada (Guatemala), Sombrilla worked to build a second story for the local elementary school. This project now includes teaching students how to make and maintain biosand water filters for a clean and safe source of drinking water.
