Hope in 2021

Thank you so much for your support of Highland Support Project through GlobalGiving. 

We are so hopeful about what is to come in 2021!

In Guatemala, our full-time AMA staff is still hard at work promoting the Pixan weaving cooperative, building clean-burning stoves, and providing women with peer-to-peer counseling. The economic, social, and health effects of the pandemic have only made these projects even more critical within Indigenous communities. Additionally, we are excited to be launching a new reforestation project this summer...more information coming soon!

Although we have decided it is not yet in the best interest of the communities we work with for us to return to Guatemala, we will be returning to Arizona this summer to work alongside Cheryl Pailzote, the head hydrologist of the White Mountain Apache Tribe. We continue to be encouraged and inspired by the ways in which our work with Indigenous communities across the Americas, from Arizona to Guatemala to Ecuador, intersect and build upon each other. 

Warmly,

 

Madison Sweitzer
