We are dedicated to helping the people of Guatemala and contributing to the fight against poverty and hunger. By purchasing through this site you will be participating as well. Not only are you providing employment for the artisans who make these items, but we will also donate a portion of the proceeds to these organizations that we strongly support:
Adopt-a-Village in Guatemala
The main focus of this organization is to educate children and adults alike to provide them with the skillset they need to build a better future. They have built schools for children and started vocational programs for adults to learn trades such as carpentry, agriculture, etc. They also have a child sponsorship program and a widows and orphans program where they provide extra help in the form of food, water, and housing for the poorest families.
This is a non-profit organization that promotes education to encourage women to make a better life for themselves and become self-sufficient and independent.
Miracles in Action
This charity seeks out projects in rural parts of Guatemala that will achieve long-term results and provide the education and vocational development needed for the poorest of the population to improve their quality of life. This includes scholastic scholarships, teacher training and materials, and a resource center. Other projects include providing healthy and safe living conditions, clean water, and nutritional supplements in some cases. Because this is an all-volunteer organization, 100% of profits go to their projects.
