I am so inspired by the work of Dr Catherine Hamlin who saw the need so many years ago to start her hospitals and through her commitment so many women's lives have been changed. Through her work women have been given a chance to lead normal lives and are freed of the shame and isolation the otherwise would have endured.
The founders of SERES believe that the way to improve an individual, community and nation is through the education and empowerment of citizens. Instead of coming to a developing country and implementing a series of aid programs that may or may not be truly helpful to the local population, the founders of SERES recognize that the smartest and most successful programs must come from within the local community and be supported by the global community. SERES is working to embrace the potential of the 15,000,000 people under the age of 30 in Guatemala and El Salvador and empower and educate them to be leaders of positive change in their respective countries.
