Our artisan collective partner, Mayan Hands, is a fair trade nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering Mayan women in their quest to bring their families out of extreme poverty as they continue to live within the culture they cherish.

In addition to offering fair wages for their work, Mayan Hands provides other support to their artisans including micro-lending, training in new skills and techniques, business and leadership development, access to health care, as well as classes in gender role awareness, domestic violence, conflict resolution, and herbal medicine. They also have a Mayan Hands Education Fund which provides scholarships to the daughters of their artisans and school supplies to all children.
