Global Brigades recently announced the successful sustainable transition from El Jute! I had the chance to meet the people from El Jute, and I can tell you Global Brigades programs work. The community went from no public health projects, no water system, and no economic infrastructure to full public health projects in all the homes, a water system that provides CLEAN water to all the home and successful microbusinesses. The women of El Jute started a very thriving bakery, making more money each year, and employing men. Not only does this promote economic development, but also gender equality.
Pictures to come!
