Mayan Families is a nonprofit operating in the Highlands of Guatemala, working to provide opportunities and assistance to the indigenous and impoverished people through education and community development.
Maya Traditions is dedicated to facilitating access to national and international markets for Maya backstrap weaver artisans and their families in the highlands of Guatemala. Following a Fair Trade model, we continually seek to support our artisans, their families, and their communities through social programs that work to build capacity, preserve local cultures, and motivate indigenous women to strengthen their entrepreneurial ecosystems.
