If ever there was a position custom made for someone, this is it. Lee Farnsworth, who has literally traveled the world, is fully bilingual, has worked with immigrants and refugees in the U.S., and absolutely LOVES people and Latin culture. She is the perfect candidate to be Something New’s on the ground American coordinator for our new program Nuevo Camino. Lee is leaving her job as a community liaison for a school system in the Atlanta, GA area to relocate to Cusco, Peru. But don’t worry, she is originally from Colorado, so the elevation will be fine!
Lee will be a vital asset to supporting the moms and their children directly (she is also a life coach) as well as continuing to build our network, coordinate volunteers and work with local people and programs to build this transition system and community that will allow moms a fresh start and opportunity to thrive.
Read the stories of Celestina, Erica, Mariela, Karina, and Rosabel to learn more about the first five moms who Lee will be working with in the program. We believe that they are just the beginning and as they get help they will be able to offer help to women behind them. We truly are building a community rooted in love.
That’s Lee on the left — along with Becca and a local volunteer in Cusco!
