This month, we celebrate!
If you know Away 2 Be, you know one of our principal tenants is the philosophy of accompaniment. Introduced by the Jesuits and adopted by leaders such asPaul Farmer, the term “accompaniment” reminds us to “walk with” one another, to relinquish our preconceptions and even our established goals in order to collaborate and create together.
The Casa Materna Mary Ann Jackman has been doing just that for 25 years. In 25 years, the Casa Materna has welcomed over 17,600 women through their doors in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, and last week, we were able to celebrate their achievements with the staff of the Casa and women of the campo! I have worked with the Casa for nearly a decade and am still humbled each time I visit, not only by the warmth and generosity it provides, but also for their steadfast dedication to lessen maternal death in Nicaragua and empower women around the world.
Here’s how you can continue the celebration for the Casa Materna with Away 2 Be:
–“Like” the Casa Materna Mary Ann Jackman on Facebook and invite friends and family too!
–Share our posts on your facebook page each day.
–Contribute to our CrowdRise event.
