Handwoven Coasters (Set of 2)
"Mayan Hands is a fair trade nonprofit organization dedicated to providing economic and educational opportunities to Mayan women so that they can bring their families out of extreme poverty as they continue to live within the culture they cherish. We believe that when provided economic and educational opportunity, women can build sustainable futures for themselves, their families and communities. We partner with more than 200 women artisans in 15 communities in the Guatemalan Highlands. Working with fair trade for 30 years has brought a sea change in the lives of the women we work with: they speak out, resist domestic oppression, and, counting on a regular income, have more control over their lives. Their families eat better and all their children go to school, including the girls, some even to university."
-Anne Kelly, Executive Director of Mayan Hands
