Workshops with Garifuna Women in Tornabe, Tela, Honduras  5/1/2019 Friends Peace Team: "The members of the group expressed their wish that other women in their organization would also receive the AVP. The women of Free Butterflies who have already attended the workshops have encouraged others to participate in the workshops. In the community there are relations marked by violence, especially domestic violence, sexual violence and normalized psychological violence through ridicule and delegitimization of one another. In the context of violence and deepening of poverty, we have found that several members of the group have left on the caravans of migrants and others relatives have paid people to take them to the United States. This fact has affected the group so that for them this workshop came at a good time to help strengthen their sense of community and belonging to the organization."
