 WITH YOUR HELP . . .

In 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. 

THANK YOU!

We are very excited to tell you about an opportunity to support our 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 and supplies to the village .
