August 2014 (No.VI)

Dear <<First Name>>,
You may have heard the saying "you don't know where you're going if you don't know where you've been."  This is sentiment the behind the monitoring system that INOGO is developing with collaborators, which you can learn more about in this month's newsletter.  Also read about JUDESUR and meet Noilyn Ramirez, a leader from Bahia-Uvita.  On behalf of the team at INOGO, we'd like to wish you a very happy (Costa Rican) Mother's Day!
