Ambassador Carlos Enrique Garcia Gonzalez, Permanent Representative of El Salvador to the United Nations, joins Montage Initiative’s panel at the United Nations in support of Sharon Pedrosa and Klevisa Kovaci, Co-Founders of Montage Initiative’s Student Advisory Board and student activists at Fairfield University. The parallel event took place in NYC, in support of the United Nations 57th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women. Klevisa and Sharon spoke about how essential the education and professional opportunities are for young women. By adopting a model of youth empowerment, they hope to set the precedent for future leadership in NGOs where women have the power to act.
