I am married to Blas Garcete who is a branch representative of my Rama 1 Caaguazú neighborhood. I have four children and 3 grandchildren. I have been a volunteer at the Bountiful Children’s Foundation for 3 years. I like to help the moms have their health lessons and their nutrients every month. I am currently about to graduate as an Educational Psychologist at the National University of Asunción. I really like Psychology because it helps children. When they develop the cognitive part of their brain, they can be more prepared and self-confident children.
Bountiful's Community Coordinators
Community coordinators serve with Bountiful as volunteers. They organize other local volunteers and together conduct screenings, train families, distribute locally-purchased supplements, and follow up on infant development.
