El Colectivo 506 recognized at first-ever Carework Network awards

This week, we were honored to receive one of the first-ever Carework Network Awards for El Colectivo 506’s October 2022 edition, “Las Titas.”
This inspiring organization unites researchers, policymakers, and advocates involved in various domains of caregiving. Their third-annual conference, held this year at the University of Costa Rica, brought together people from 33 countries on five continents for workshops on diverse carework-related topics.
We’re so proud that our in-depth reporting on senior citizens who care for parents and grandkids in Costa Rica was showcased alongside fellow honorees including “The Shape of Care” podcast, the Association of Domestic Workers, and Mignon Duffy.
With us in spirit was the Fundación Yamuni Tabush, which made “Las Titas” possible through their generous sponsorship—and “Las Titas” photojournalists Gloria Calderón, Andrea Del Mar, Priscilla Mora, and Glorianna Ximendaz.
Contributors to our special edition, “Las Titas,” recognized by the jury of the Pío Víquez National Journalism Award. From left, rear: Gloría Calderón, Katherine Stanley Obando, and Mónica Quesada.

Thank you, Carework Network, for shining a light on this topic and motivating us to keep reporting on caregivers from all walks of life in Costa Rica.
