Within the framework of International Women’s Month, the Consul General of Mexico in New York, Jorge Islas López, presented an award from the Society of Foreign Consuls in New York to Myriam Rebling, executive director of the Qualitas of Life Foundation for her work in benefit of the Hispanic community in the tri-state area.
The coronavirus pandemic, “has reminded us how fragile is the situation of women in the workplace,” Rebling timely expressed as she accepted the recognition. Currently, 4 out of 5 people who attend Qualitas of Life workshops are women. “We can contribute to their empowerment in society, to their contribution to the stability of their family, and help them to go beyond their domestic tasks,” she added.
Further providing financial education, during 2020, Qualitas of Life contributed to alleviating the needs of thousands of Hispanic families who do not qualify for assistance from the United States Government with more than US $ 500,000 in emergency resources. This achievement is due to the support and contribution of several donor families who trusted the organization.
“This crisis allowed us to verify what we can achieve when we are united,” Rebling stressed while she recognized the unconditional support of Consul Jorge Islas López and the General Consulate of Mexico in New York. She also thanked the donors for their generous contributions.
The mission of Qualitas of Life is to improve the quality of life of Hispanics living in the United States and to help them join the country’s financial system by providing them with the necessary educational tools to achieve their goals.
Qualitas of Life Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides financial education to Hispanic individuals and their families, in order to foster their financial security and improve their standard of living.
