We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you and best wishes to Elizabeth Stephan, student, colleague and friend to the Pakariñan Network, its partners and everyone else connected to the network, for her hard work in strengthening our efforts in community-based tourism. It has been a real pleasure to see her selflessness and hard work while collaborating in the huge variety of tasks that she was given. We hope that, one day, we will be able to pay her back for all her dedication and effort and that she will come back and revisit us and the communitiers we work with and be welcomed as though she had never been away! Thank you so much to our special Lizzy!
