ABOUT THE ARTISANS

This beaded jewelry was handmade by women in the village of Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala.  Not only are the artisans paid fair wages, but the profits from the jewelry sales are used to feed impoverished elders in the community.  The program provides meals three times a week to severely impoverished elders, many of whom otherwise have no food to eat.  The majority were widowed during the genocide in the 1980's.  This is an extraordinary program we are thrilled to partner with.
