Collaboration is Key!


The collaborative relationships we enjoy ensure the sustainability of Tia projects.  And in the case of Tizapan el Alto, the combined efforts of each individual are running this project like a well-oiled machine, guaranteeing that this will be one of our most successful projects yet, with over 50 volunteer Promotoras attending our courses this week!  This picture shows perfectly the mix of team members required to make this collaboration work.

Lily (pink shirt) and Adriana (white shirt) are community representatives.  The men (from left to right) are Dr. César, the Director of the Municipal Health Center in Tizapan el Alto; Nate Harris, Program and Marketing Director from Tia; Dr. Roberto Martinez, UVM Brigade Director; and Lic. Gerardo Barba González, the Regidor of Heath from the Municipal Government responsible for coordinating all these efforts from the government side.  Then, there is Patricia Garibay Fernandez del Valle, Program Coordinator for Tia.
