AFSC volunteer Judith Rosenberg and AFSC Austin Program Coordinator Josefina Castillo received a recognition from Ten Thousand Villages (one of the invited fair trade cooperatives that participate in our annual Women & Fair Trade Sale) during an International Women’s Day celebration in their premises.

Judith and Josefina were awarded with a beautiful hand-made bronze pendant symbolizing the eucalyptus tree for their humanitarian service to the community.
