Dear Friendship Bridge Family,
2023 was a great year full of new achievements for Friendship Bridge, development for our clients, progress for our staff, and good news about our many programs designed to empower Guatemalan women and eliminate poverty.
As I reflect on my inaugural year as President & CEO, I am deeply moved by the dedication and hard work exhibited by both our staff and our clients. This was a year of significant transition in organizational leadership, coupled with challenges surrounding the presidential election in Guatemala. Your unwavering commitment to Friendship Bridge amidst these changes is truly commendable and does not go unnoticed. I am also filled with gratitude that, with the collective effort of everyone involved, we were able to serve nearly 35,000 women in 2023. Thank you all for your outstanding contributions!
As we plan for the year ahead in 2024, there are still more milestones to reach, but we are staying well-aligned with the goals outlined in our 2021–2025 Strategic Plan, Impact2. Continue reading to discover the multitude of accomplishments that your support has contributed to!
