In-person AVP Advanced Domestic Violence Workshop in Ecuador

by Monica Maher 

The AVP Advanced workshop on responding to domestic violence, developed by Shirley Way and NY AVP,  has been translated into Spanish by an Ecuadorian volunteer, Carolina Cajas, with Friend Charles Rand.  The workshop was co-facilitated for the first time on March 12 by Beatriz Villareal and Mónica Maher with 15 Kichwa women leaders of Jambi Mascari in Cotacachi, Ecuador.  The women loved it, and asked for sequential weekly meetings in order to put their learning into practice between sessions; the next in-person session will be held on March 19.
