  • Descripción


    We are a social enterprise based in a rural Guatemalan community on the Pacific coast. We sell products (bracelets, t-shirts, beach bags, yoga bags etc) and are about to get our tours in the national park (mangrove, turtle and salt farm tour, cooking class, bracelet making class and homestay) back up and running after the pandemic. Through the products and tours we are able to create employment opportunities in the community. We invest all profits in our education and projects and employ local staff. Since 2012, we have built a library, a secondary school, a computer lab and an organic garden. Through the library, we are able to reinforce children's reading and writing skills as well as give workshops about environmental sustainability, recycling etc.
