Women for Conservation was created in memory of Amparo, Sara’s mother, a visionary who dedicated her life to the empowerment of rural women in Cauca, Colombia. She sadly died at the age of 42, when Sara was only 19 years old. Sara now runs the organization with her daughter Isabella.
“In essence, we are built on three generations of mother and daughter connection, passing knowledge, wisdom and passion. The lessons of our grandmother guides us to better understand the issues that women face. We dedicate our cause to the generations of women… past, present and yet to come.”
