Learning about gender equality!
The relationship between Limitless Horizons Ixil and Girl Rising began in 2022 at an event organized by El Directorio Guatemala, where the organizations discussed their shared vision towards gender equality. The relationship was further strengthened in an EDG Networking event the following year, and from this a collaboration began in which Girl Rising provided resources including manuals for mentors to use with students, a book of stories about women who have gone through difficult situations in different parts of the world, informative audios and videos, and magazines of success stories adapted to the mentoring curriculum. Likewise, a Limitless Horizons Ixil team of mentors received training as part of the awareness-raising process to address gender and inequalities issues.
This alliance has been developing for two years and is not over yet because this year (2024) educators and mentors will continue to participate in follow-up sessions and workshops on the use of the material received for its correct implementation in their classrooms.
The work continues, and we'll see the fruits soon because... together we work better!
