Por que Boruca?

I chose this particular global experience because it spoke to my heart and soul.  So Cagru is a group comprised of 12 women who started their own business selling their traditional arts of cotton weaving and mask paintings.  The president of the association, Lourdes raised her four children on her own which really drew me to this organization, above all the others in Costa   Rica, because my mom was a single mother as well.  Due to my background, my desire to participate in any volunteer opportunities for female empowerment was a natural progression and one that I wish to take part in more back at home in Toronto like the Scarborough Women’s Centre.
