“In order for our cleanup projects to succeed, we always strive to involve the community, in particular women. Women are usually more receptive to the solutions we bring, and more willing to set them into action. If you win over women, you are more likely to have a positive, long term impact on their families, and thus the community.” — Budi Susilorini, Pure Earth Indonesia

Spotlight: Circle of Women, Pure Earth Mexico
Women’s circles are important because historically, those of us who have the least latitude to enjoy, to go out, to create, and to relax are women; and because safe spaces, created between women, heal. They help us identify with each other, examine each other, share our concerns, pains and dreams, and decide together what we want for our future and how to make us stronger collectively. — Pure Earth’s Circle of Women: Creating Safe Spaces For Innovation And Health With Traditional Potters In Mexico
