What Inspires Us?
Pueblo a Pueblo's staff are the backbone of our work with coffee-farming families in Santiago Atitlan. This month, we spoke to some of our staff members to see what inspires them. We loved the answers!
"It inspires me to see smiles on the women's faces." - Vilma Mendoza, Maternal Child Health Project Manager
"I am inspired by the faces of the people that are part of Pueblo a Pueblo. The messages of satisfaction from our beneficiaries, our staff, and our donors, because what I have always wanted to do in my life is lessen the suffering of the world we live in." -Montse Deu, Director of Programs
"I am inspired by the smiles of the students when they receive their backpacks with school supplies." -Johanny Quieju, Primary Education Sponsorships Project Manager
"I am inspired every day in my work at Pueblo a Pueblo by the passion of my coworkers. They work very hard to ensure Pueblo's projects are running smoothly and effectively for so many children, students, families, and communities. Many of them have a multitude of responsibilities outside of Pueblo a Pueblo, yet they are putting their hearts into Pueblo's work, and every day at the office we are all laughing and chatting (and occasionally dancing!) together. It is beyond inspiring to be surrounded by such passionate, kind, and hard-working co-workers and friends." -Robin Schmid, Grants Associate
"I am inspired by seeing the children reading books on the school patio first thing in the morning, because just by reading one can learn many more words." -Lidia Quieju, Pathways to Literacy Project Coordinator
"I am inspired by seeing the children's smiles as they wash their hands at their new WASH facilities." -Tomas Mendoza, WASH In Schools Project Manager
"I am inspired every day by the hard work and dedication of my coworkers." -Sarah Otis, Communications Coordinator
"I am inspired by carrying out my work for the well-being of the communities we work with. For example, when carrying out trainings and home visits to see the state of the health of sponsored students." -Rebeca Sosof, Maternal Child Health Program Assistant
