  • Descrição


    We are a social enterprise based in a rural Guatemalan community on the Pacific coast. We sell locally made products and run tours with the local guides in the surrounding national park. Through the sales of products and tours we are able to create employment opportunities in the community and then invest all profits in our education programmes in the primary and secondary schools. Since 2012, we have built a library, a secondary school, a computer lab, an organic garden and a multi-use community space. Post-pandemic we are supporting schools with teachers, educational resources, stationery, WIFI and electricity costs, infrastructure and maintenance as well as English lessons for staff.
