Dear Rose, 

We would like to extend our most heartfelt congratulations to you on being awarded the Women's World Summit Foundation's Prize for Women's Creativity in Rural Life!

This award marks an important stride in generating visibility to the powerful work you are moving forward in 115 marginalized indigenous communities along the Coco River in the North Atlantic Coast in Nicaragua.

The programs you developed through Wangki Tangni to meet the immediate needs of these local indigenous communities while also promoting women’s empowerment, the preservation of traditional values, and agricultural food security are both innovative and effective and continue to serve as an inspiration to MADRE. Your tireless hard work and dedication is an integral and vital force in the promotion of women’s human rights that sets an example for everyone to follow.

Together, we continue our work for a world where human rights are a reality for everybody. We support you and are honored to work with you.
