The Pakis Family Foundation awarded the Tia Foundation a generous grant. Part of the grant is designated to hire an in-country Project Manager in Mexico and to provide that person with needed equipment and expenses. Patricia Garibay, of Guadalajara, will be Tia’s new Project Manager. She will be tasked with helping projects get launched more quickly, spreading awareness of our program in Mexico, compiling baseline and continuing data, and connecting villages to a wider range of resources. Look for Patricia’s biography which will be posted here in a few days.
Like many nonprofits, Tia’s human resources have been stretched thin due to our growth. The grant will allow Tia to help more people in rural Mexico, much more quickly and efficiently. We are so grateful the kindness, generosity and trust our donors and grant makers show us!
