Guatemals

MayaWorks organizes groups of artisans across many Guatemalan villages with the ultimate goal of uniting and supporting the men and women trying to overcome poverty and illiteracy.  The strength and talent of the Mayan women in their traditional weaving technique allows them to create colorful, attractive products ranging from placemats to bags to dolls.  Volunteers in each local community display and sell the items, creating a fair marketplace where the artisans may benefit directly from their hard work. In spite of the barriers of distance, language, and culture MayaWorks promotes the singular goal of contributing to Mayan artisans’ economic security through sustainable, fair trade markets for their products.
