The Impact of Your Purchase
In Guatemala, gender discrimination and a lack of opportunities prevent many women in areas of extreme poverty from receiving an education or earning a living wage. But these women are utilizing their traditional skills to create beautiful products that reflect their culture and empower them to provide for their families at home. As Artisans and business owners, women in rural villages are now able to feed, clothe, and pay for their children to go to school – opening doors to a brighter future for the next generation in Guatemala!
Meet the Artisan: Clara’s Story of Hope
For years, Clara’s job kept her from being with her family. Then she built a workshop in her home so she could work with her husband and have more time to spend with her children.
When other parents from her village still needed to travel far away to earn enough income to feed their families, Clara invited them to become Artisans in her workshop. Now these parents in Guatemala can feed their children, send them to school, and enjoy spending time with their families.
