(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) NEW YORK, NY - May 17, 2010 - On May 15, 2010 officials in New York and in Bogotá, Colombia, the Executive Director of PCI Media Impact Michael Tatu Castlen and the Regional Director of Diakonia in Latin America Marianne Gustafsson, signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which structures the cooperation between the two international Non-governmental organizations.

Utilizing their experience and familiarity with issues in underdeveloped countries, the agreement makes progress towards the creation and implementation of a regional program to eradicate violence against women in Latin America. Such violence is a continuous grave problem.  It not only effects economic development and Democracy in the region, but also represents the violation of Human Rights and reinforces stereotypes of Latin American culture.

The event, via Skype, included participation from Marianna Gustafsson and Morten Schmidit -Vice Regional Director of Diakonia and Michael Tatu Castlen, Sylvia Torres and Kari Reynolds  Development Officers, Brenda Campos- Programs Manager, Lindsey Wahlstrom- Program Coordinated and Susan Hill Developement assistant.
