Fausto Javier Green | Business Development Promoter, WIEP
You always know when Fausto is around as his big laugh follows him everywhere. Fausto joined the CAUSE team in August 2008. He holds a Diploma in Science and Language Arts and is currently working towards receiving his Teacher’s Certificate which will allow him to teach in the Bilingual (Garifuna-Spanish) Intercultural Program for primary students.
Fausto is dedicated to finishing his studies to help ensure better education for children in Garifuna communities. With this same devotion and determination Fausto has been helping women’s groups in four Garifuna communities in the district of Iriona to form solidarity groups, develop business plans and manage small business loans.
Karen Patricia Bernardez Martinez | Business Development Promoter, WIEP
After receiving her Teacher’s Certificate, Paty began her work with CAUSE in 2007 implementing the Organic Agricultural Project. Providing workshops in four Regional Training Centers in Iriona, the basics of composting, full life-cycle crop management and organic fertilizers were taught.
In 2008, Paty helped form the business development classes in four Garifuna communities. As well as working on the fine tuning of the curriculum, Paty teaches the women’s groups to develop stronger entrepreneurial skills by providing training in financial management, market analysis, business planning and micro-loan management.
Paty’s work with CAUSE is helping her fulfill one of her aspirations, which is to continually strengthen the wellbeing of the Garifuna and their communities through education and community development.
