Day 34. For up-to-date news and photos of the journey, please go to: www.elcaminoylacomida.com. Who said women are high maintenance? Between B, Kat, and Z, there were only 9 pairs of underwear, 6 pairs of pants, and two bars of soap for over a month.
Heifer began a WiLD initiative 22 years ago “to address gender equity issues, and to enable women to care for themselves and by extension their families and the Earth.” WiLD stands for Women in Livestock Development, and founded on the belief that women have the moxie and the grace to make change happen.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
