Friends, volunteers and staff members at Tia are all celebrating International Women’s Day by remembering our 320 Community Health Workers, most of whom are women.  Each are responsible for making life better and healthier for all the people in their villages and setting an example to their daughters and sons on giving back to their communities.  These women also are changing villagers’ perception about women in general, raising the level of respect and honor.  Some have become trusted political representatives for their communities in local government, ensuring that their daughters will be more valued when they become women too.
