WASH Programming: Our WASH Director, Tiven Buggy, has officially completed training Puente's first cohort of WASH volunteers. The course is available to all motivated Puente volunteers that have at least 6 months of experience working with Puente. Professor Tiven pushed participants to learn microbiology, water quality sampling and testing, monitoring and evaluation of WASH initiatives, etc. We are thrilled to take our volunteer program to new heights and we couldn't have a better professor leading the way!
New Sustainable Community Development Cohort: Our Community Coordinator, Yinetza Alvarez worked closely with Crismary Gutierrez to train 6 new volunteers. Training took place over the last 2 months and our new volunteers are already making an impact within their home communities. To date, we have trained over 40 individuals on sustainable community development. We love bringing on new team members, especially when they are motivated to drive lasting change!
