Once we have a firm practice of compassion our state of mind becomes stronger which leads to inner peace, giving rise to self-confidence, which reduces fear. This makes for constructive members of the community. Self-centredness on the other hand leads to distance, suspicion, mistrust and loneliness, with unhappiness as the result.

Congratulations to Chiapas International on their 10-year anniversary! A message from our Executive Director, Tricia Medrano Bridges:

Today marks the 10th Anniversary of Chiapas International!! First known as The Chiapas Project, after a group of Dallas are women traveled to Chiapas to see a small, promising microfinance group at the invitation of Alex Counts. After meeting the women seeing first-hand how small loans could change lives, our organization was given life.

Thank you to "The Dallas Thirty" for paving the way, leaving a path for us to follow, now having impacted thousands of lives in Latin America...Gracias, Thank you to all
