We have always known as an organization that doing good in the world is important. It drives us to be the best. However, what makes doing good even more impactful is doing good with great people. Health Bridges is an organization of amazing people.
HBI is a team of committed professionals with big strategic minds and even bigger hearts. We know that the work of changing child welfare service in Peru is a massive undertaking. That is why we have some of the brightest and best on our team. Srta. Jocabeth Oscátegui Pérez is one of the newest members of the Health Bridges team and she brings years of direct care, advocacy and professional development to our Comunidad Girasoles work. For nearly two decades, Srta. Jocabeth has been championing child welfare change in Peru.
Srta. Joca, as she is know by the team, works tirelessly behind the scenes working with youth in the Casa Girasoles program and young adults who have left residential child-welfare care. She works with the young people to identify their passions, actualize their dreams and create concrete plans to build the lives they deserve. Joca helps to align youth into government benefits programs like scholarships and job training, and then walks side-by-side with them as they build their futures.
We are so thankful to have Srta. Jocabeth Oscátegui Pérez on the Health Bridges team. She is a rare mix of gifted intellect and enormous compassion. She is a true change agent for Peru and the children of Peru.
