Empowering the families of our women artisans

Jose Miguel shares his happiness with his mom

We are very happy to share with you the start of the new school year of 2020. Our goal has always been to support the sons and daughters of the weavers of Santiago Atitlan, so that they would not stop attending school. This is one of the ways we empower the families of the artisans. 

This year José Miguel starts to study to become an accountant. Thanks to the help of the program he is the first of his family to pursue his dreams.

Three of our students in middle school, Lourdes, Israel and Pedro, are discovering in this step of their academic preparation the areas in which they excel to choose the career for which they will be studying in the future.

The brothers Misael and Oliver are excited because this year they are going to finish elementary school. These two young boys have persevered and improved greatly in their studies, notwithstanding the difficulties that their families face, and they have become an example to their two younger brothers.

These kids dream of becoming professionals one day and in January, they can gain even more motivation to start the year by relying on their school material. Donate a smile to each one of these kids and kindly contribute to help them buy their school material.
