    We are a 100% worker-owned association based in Guatemala, created to help local women receive a fair salary through textile production using the ancient back-strap loom weaving process. Our cooperative is the perfect place to volunteer if you’re creative, self-motivated, and interested in Guatemala’s Mayan traditions.

    Working directly with 17 weaving groups, representing 400 women from five different states, our project provides a means for women in the Los Altos region of Guatemala to support their families and communities. Our headquarters is located in Quetzaltenango (Xela), where we teach backstrap loom weaving classes and feature the co-op's goods in our tienda (shop).

    Our mission is to offer training, support, work and fair wages to the women of Guatemala; to uphold their families and their communities with honour, and to maintain and develop their art, stories, designs, and textile traditions.

    Here we understand that a voluntary position should be beneficial for both the volunteer and the organization. We always do our best to place our volunteers in roles that they have experience in and will excel in. We fully appreciate all the time given to us and we rely a lot on all the help we receive through volunteers from all over the world. It is a great chance to understand the working of a small fair trade textile association here in Guatemala and work with Guatemalan women here. You can help make a difference to the textile industry!

    Accommodation Note:

    We do not provide accommodations or meals, but we can help you find an inexpensive place to stay. Quetzaltenango is a mid-sized city with plenty of affordable hostels and apartments. There are many shops and restaurants, bars and cafes, and it is a short bus ride away from many of the beautiful tourist sites in Los Altos (Lake Atitlán, Chichicastenango, Antigua, Huehuetenango, and many other destinations)!

    All positions are non-paid. We do not charge any fees for volunteering.

    As the second-largest city in Guatemala, Quetzaltenango is full of fun things to do! There are some beautiful sites to see close by, including Lake Atitlan, which is just a few hours away by bus. There are many volunteers here in Xela with various NGO's, as well as a lot of students learning Spanish, so you are bound to make plenty of new friends in and out of the family!
