    great blog i just found it, i’ve always wanted to do an english blog about Guatemala in english (i’m guatemalan) but I’ve always wanted to show a different idea of what you regularly see in the news.

    great job! 🙂

    Dear Anna, great blog. It was fun reading your article on sand boarding at the Cerro Negro volcano in Nicaragua. We agree on the lack of media coverage countries like Nicaragua have, and would therefore like to get in touch and see what efforts we con conduct jointly.

    Hello Anna,

    I have read your article titled: Femicide: “Guatemala’s growing epidemic”,
    and was wondering if you would grant me the permission to publish it in the NewJurist.

    Great articles Anna! My name is Clara and I am the Operational Director of the Institute for Trafficked, Exploited, and Missing Persons. This is an organization that works to prevent, interdict, rescue, recover, and rehabilitate victims of human trafficking in Guatemala and in the United States.

    In Guatemala, we provide victims with safe houses when necessary, medical and psychological aid, social and legal assistance, as well as education, because education is key for vulnerable children to get out of poverty, know their rights and become less of a target for human traffickers.

    As January 11 is the National Anti Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the U.S, I thought you could be interested in writing an article about what we do!

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Great Job with your blog.

    Hi Anna I am a documentary filmmaker from Houston and spend a lot of time in Guatemala. I am interested in doing a documentary based on one of your blog entries. Is there any way I can get in contact with you to discuss the subject further?
