Testimonial from Basty Castillo

"I met outstandingly strong women throughout the Mohala program! As a leader, I had the opportunity to listen to their stories and experiences which humbled me tremendously, and in turn, with the program, we shared powerful techniques to build strong family ties and bond with their youth and community resources effectively. I enormously thank Lucy, Hui International Executive Director, for reaching out and entrusting me with my Mohala hui. It was such a fantastic leadership experience that I hope to build upon while continuing to serve my community with such brilliant materials and connections to resources!"
