Seizing an opportunity to share your skills, talents and knowledge with those who can benefit from them is a rewarding and precious experience. Yvette Franco, a Bpeace volunteer who traveled to Guatemala to meet with and mentor local entrepreneurs, can attest to all the above. On a personal mission to build peace in a conflict-affected area, Yvette was delighted to work on a project she knew could help more people, particularly women, understand and employ entrepreneurship to create jobs.
