The Last Shall Be First

Martha Marak and her children live in a remote, mountainous and indigenous area of Meghalaya, a little strip of land that sits in the Northeast of the country just above Bangladesh. World Renew isn't afraid of taking on challenging situations and remote locations, and their work in the community here is a good example of that.

Knocked Sideways

We set off at 4 AM for our first visit to Concepción Actelá, a small village in the mountains of Alta Verapaz. It took 40 minutes for an all-terrain vehicle to climb the path to the village from the nearest town. We travelled with the staff of World Renew in Guatemala and a staff member of ADIP, a local partner group. There was one passenger seat in the truck, everyone else was bouncing around precariously in the back of the pickup.
