Congratulations CETAP

To keep the community informed, here is a report on recent activities and events that Hearts of Gold and its volunteers are preparing for.

Our organizational partner, CETAP Lucy celebrated their ten-year anniversary. We are extremely proud of how much they have grown as a non-profit in the last five years of Hearts of Gold knowing them. They have really developed in the way they manage relationships with their supporters. They continue to take on more responsibility for their communication and fundraising. Their anniversary celebration was exemplary of that. We are proud of them and are delighted to continue to have them in the Community Assistance Program. Congratulations CETAP.

This year, Hearts of Gold cordially invites you to celebrate the holiday season with us in a new way at our “Gala in the Garden” Christmas Party. Get ready for an entirely new experience as we celebrate good times with great friends in the garden. This year’s event will take place at a historic quinta (country house) along the river, just outside of the city . You’ll be in a flourishing garden with warm drinks, live music, friends and delicious food prepared by a local chef. There are only 100 tickets are available. The event of the year will be on Saturday December 1, 2:30 PM to 8 PM at the Historic Quinta, 15 minutes after the “Tennis Club.” Cost for tickets are $40. Transportation is included!

The Hearts of Gold Foundation wants to give you a chance to win big, just in time for the holidays. When you purchase tickets to our community 50/50, or split the pot, raffle, you’ll have the opportunity to win half of the money we raise. You will also warm your heart knowing that the other half goes to support Hearts of Gold’s mission to empower communities so that women, children and families can enjoy lives of hope, health and dignity. The 50/50 winner will be drawn Dec. 1st. Get your tickets on our website or give give us a call at our office weekdays between 9 AM and 1 PM to (07) 285 3767.

Our goals for the future? We have many!
Looking back on the pilot year of Mírame so far, we want to see it grow. We have been fortunate to provide empowerment workshops in the themes of holistic health, nutrition, motivation, yoga and meditation, and stress management... but there is so much more to do! We look forward to developing a formal curriculum for Mírame and expand its impact by inviting more participants from Cuenca's rural and urban communities. Our relationship with the rural women's cooperative Kallpa Warmi is one to be proud of, but we want to meet and collaborate with more women's groups!
