Trickle Up welcomes our new partner and funder, Mayan Partners. Together, we will reach 600 extremely poor youth, in Solola, Guatemala.
Leading the Way
“My name is Mungli Lohar. I am from Chhota Nagra. I am in the Moshkal Women’s Self Help Group. I was selected out of many women to be a ‘Smart Sakhi’ (coach). I train other members. Trickle Up partners taught me how to use mobile phones. Now I am passing on these skills. My goal is to lift us out of poverty. We support each other. We borrowed from the group to start a small restaurant. We serve fish, eggs, bread, and samosas.”
“My sister Mungli is a good trainer. She gives us support and encouragement.”
“My sister is a good student.”
“Mungli can get frustrated if we forget something but she always explains it again.”
“Our future is bright. We won’t back down. I am a leader and we can achieve anything… together.”
This scarf is not made by hand. It’s made by ambition, on a machine, bought with savings, that was earned with profit. It’s made by going further.
Poverty is isolation. It is hunger and instability. It’s a cycle that’s hard to break. That’s why we work harder. We work smarter on the plan and on the ground. We go further.
