Cultivating self-sustainability in rural Guatemala

  Sowing Opportunities seeks to cultivate self-sustainability, education, and wellness in rural Guatemala – one village at a time.


 

We are very excited to tell you about an opportunity to give a beautiful gift to your loved one or yourself while supporting Sowing Opportunities sustainability projects as well as indigenous Mayan artisans.

Now you can purchase beautiful handcrafted Mayan artwork at TheGallery@57. All the pieces are skillfully created by indigenous Mayan artisans. Your purchase of these goods directly benefits both the artisans through Guatemalan Fair Trade as well as Sowing Opportunities.

Your support of this work allows the artists to continue to create and also helps Sowing Opportunities to reach our goal of delivering groceries to the village for mid-December.

We have a goal of raising $3,000 to deliver groceries to a destitute village in Guatemala. Last year (2020) Sowing Opportunities delivered 12½ tons of groceries to the people in a remote village to sustain them during the Covid-19 pandemic and hurricanes/flooding.

Thanks to you, the village received food!

In 2020 we delivered groceries nine times to the village of 3,000 people, during the pandemic, and following hurricanes that devastated the area with flooding.
