The year 2013 has begun where 2012 left off; with good news and major progress. On the 2nd of January we hired a new President for Aguayuda, Jean Makowski Waagbo. Jean comes to this position with over 35 years of experience in the development world including working recently with Lutheran World Relief. We are very excited to work with her and welcome her to the Aguayuda team.
This move enables Sabrina and Simón to concentrate more on project management and partnership development on the ground in Colombia, while Jean leads the US office in fundraising, management and organizational development.
This growth will enable us to implement more projects, which means we can help more people gain access to clean water and education. To see what possibilities clean water can bring to people, please view our new introduction video and let us know what you think.
