Cultivating self-sustainability in rural Guatemala

Sowing Opportunities seeks to cultivate self-sustainability, education, and wellness in rural Guatemala.


Sowing Opportunities is indebted to the capable assistance of Elena Martínez and Valmy González for their help in organizing and LIFTING and transporting (from one storage facility to another), nearly 260 bags of soft goods for our Savers fundraiser!  Val did the heavy lifting all day (August 2nd) and Elena was our constant support, providing website assistance, taking professional photos to document our day, and keeping track of the bags.  Not an easy feat!  If you are looking for a skilled and innovative web designer, check out Elena’s website!

Sowing Opportunities is incredibly grateful to Mary Selvoski, master tailor and Seamstress to the New Hampshire stars, who must liquidate her stock during this pandemic, and who donated over 125 of 40-gallon bags of clothing for our Savers fundraiser!

Sowing Opportunities gratefully acknowledges the anonymous donor who gave $350 on June 25, 2020.  Until we can go to the village to meet with the leaders and do a needs assessment, once this pandemic is past us, we are using these funds to feed hungry families in the village (see below).
