Her Excellency Madame Vanda Pignato - CIFAL Atlanta, 20 Dec 2013 [cached]
Vanda Pignato is the first lady of El Salvador and the Secretary for Social Inclusion. Even though she was born in Brazil, she has been heavily involved in El Salvador for many years. Her career started as a lawyer who dedicated her life to fight for human rights and better international relations.
In June 2009, her career in the office of the President began, as she was named the Secretary for Social Services. She was tasked with focusing on human rights of those groups typically excluded from El Salvador, such as women, older people, handicapped people, and children without homes. She has achieved much success in bettering the lives of people in these sectors.
Due to all of Ms. Pignato's hard work and success in these areas, she has received many awards. The South-South Award was given to her in the category of Women and Children's Health. She also obtained the Americas Award for her efforts to improve the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals in the category of Gender Equality. Last but not least, Ms. Pignato received the United States' Ellis Island Medal of Honor due to her successes in defending human rights in El Salvador. At this point, Ms. Pignato is the only Latin American woman to receive this award.
