We partnered with Hillcrest Elementary School which has a high Hispanic population. Our partnership includes going to the school and leading a fun and interactive lesson on the beauty and complexity of Hispanic culture. http://hie.abss.k12.nc.us/
This was the first time our class contacted the founder of Luna Maya: Cris Alonso. Following the Skype session, the education group and the health care group decided to partner with this wonderfully community-based organization that was so dedicated to women's health, safety, and humanized birth.
Thomas is the first of our class to go to Chiapas (San Cristobal, specifically) as a Periclean Scholar. His experience shed a lot of light on how we should approach and work with the people of Chiapas.
