Cristal Montanez Baylor
PWI Platinum Member, Cristal Montanez Baylor, is the Executive Director of Hashoo Foundation USA. She leads initiatives to promote Hashoo Foundation's Women's Empowerment through Honey Bee Farming Project - "Plan Bee"- in the US. The project empowers women in the remote Northern Areas of Pakistan by expanding employment opportunities and generating a stable source of income through the sale of high-quality honey. The project is the winner of the prestigious World Challenge 08 Award competition sponsored by BBC and Newsweek in association with Shell, and it is a featured commitment on the Clinton Global Initiative website. Cristal believes that expanding income generating programs will strengthen the communities and help prevent the influence of extremism in Pakistan.
