Hand-made beaded bracelets, necklaces, key chains, ornaments and purses from the Highlands region of Guatemala.
Your purchase of Mayan beadwork helps in two ways:
- The Mayan women who make the beaded items receive an income in a region where jobs are scarce and wages are low.
- The proceeds from the sales of Mayan beadwork provide funding for the tuition and school expenses of middle-school students in Guatemala.
The overhead is very low; virtually your entire purchase price ends up back in Guatemala to improve the quality of life for people here.
Educational funding goes to SLT scholars, a 501(c)(3) non-profit group
