Tara Gupta Presents on Social Inclusion Efforts

Tara Gupta, a Minnesota-Uruguay Partners member who won a scholarship to participate in Partners' Colombia Youth Leadership Summit in 2011 as a high school student, on Sunday shared observations from her recent trip to Uruguay

Tara was invited to speak at the U.S. Embassy in Montevideo last month and traveled to Migues to learn about efforts underway there with Gladys Ferrero, the phenomenal rural school director who reaches out to youth for job training and other projects.

Tara is now a first-year student at Wellesley College.

Our group was hosted so warmly by Melissa and Uri Camarena in their beautiful home, the former Pillsbury Mansion in Minneapolis, for the presentation and discussion. It was a very special day.

Thank you all!
