Mayan Hands is a fair trade nonprofit organization partnering with about 200 talented Mayan women in the Guatemala Highlands. Though recognized worldwide as extraordinary weavers and artisans, Mayan women experience discrimination, poverty, and marginalization in their home country. However, when provided with economic and educational opportunity, our artisan partners and their families thrive. Families access better nutrition and health care, children – even the girls – attend school, and women invest in their local economies. Programs that support our artisan partners in realizing their potential as artists, businesswomen, and leaders in their communities create lasting change at home, and allow the women to share their creativity and culture with the global community.
