Capacitar International: Dignity Health 2016 Grantee

Self-care training given to 35 Mayan midwives

In March, 2016 Capacitar used Dignity Health’s grant to give training in self-care to Mayan midwives. They were told about the violence in Afghanistan, and the women responded by conducting a blessing of protection, and creating gifts of small Mayan ceremonial bags that Dr. Cane distributed to Afghani families when she traveled there in October.

Dr. Cane’s trip to Afghanistan resulted in nine days of workshops given to Afghan Peace Volunteers in Kabul. Their projects included outreach for youth and women.
