Project Guatemala


Mountain ranges split the land, cutting through it the same way disaster has cut through the lives of the Guatemalan people. From politics down to the weather, this land has known hardship—the force of abused power used relentlessly. Here in the midst of such devastation, Project Guatemala is extending hope and healing to weary people. Tucked away in the safety of the project, a group of widowed artisans begin life again, working with dignity as they weave the beautiful textiles that so richly capture their culture. Young men trained as tailors use the fabric to then create a variety of fun products. Job opportunities, health services, housing accommodations, and educational scholarships are also offered. Your purchase enables these widows and young people to live with a renewed sense of purpose and know the empowerment that comes from having someone believe in them.
