Emergency Artisan Relief Donations
EMERGENCY FOOD RELIEF re: Covid-19
we are currently working to get urgent food supplies to artisan families. $100 will provide one family with enough beans, corn, rice, cooking oil & sugar. we have 44 families to feed. they have been cut off from their resources. & are in dire need.
RAISE THE ROOF
What makes our companies unique is that we work directly with the artisans, who most often, work from their homes. This allows them to work at their own pace & also be with their families & children. We are continually identifying various immediate needs among them & one of those is lack of proper roofing on their homes. We have designed & commissioned the construction of several new roofs- each estimating to cost a total of $250 USD.
Our collective goal is to have 20 new roofs ready to assemble by October as soon as the wet season ends & gift them to 20 weavers & their families. This is a $5000 goal.
This effort will dramatically change the quality of everyday life for them... in so many ways - many of them have dirt floors making it almost impossible to work when they are muddy, it will provide more protection from the sun & bugs & it will allow them to work safely and more efficiently.
Thank you for your continued support of our small businesses & our beautiful & talented Guatemalan partners.
