and teaching middle school science.

Partnering with Helix Evaluation, Christopher Villa, www.helixeval.com.
We support a Mexican civic association that provides shelter and support to talented young women from low-income areas in Mexico so they can pursue university education. Many benefit from GranosDeAmor.com (Growing Seeds of Love), and many are seeking our support.
Because so many of the women are overcoming the impact of sexual abuse, we are also implementing sexual abuse prevention education in locations across Mexico. Nurses, psychologists, and teachers team with the young women in our program to teach the lessons in schools and community centers.
The curriculum is free on the website, http://www.granosdeamor.com
