Organization Information

Mission Statement

Friends of Sharing the Dream in Guatemala is a volunteer-based. fair trade organization that works to reduce poverty in Guatemala through collaborative partnerships with Guatemalans. ‚Äč100% of donations and 90% of profits from sales of our handmade Guatemalan crafts support projects such as food and medical care for elders, an orphanage of over 250 children, and the building/furnishing of a new school along with paying teacher's salaries, all within the communities of our craftspeople.

Description

Sharing the Dream in Guatemala began in 1996 with the dream of promoting sustainable fair trade by providing fair wages and employment opportunities to low-income artisans. We work with more than 20 cooperatives and small businesses that use traditional Maya techniques to create unique, handmade products. The purchase of these crafts not only provides an income for these artisans, but also supports community development projects in Guatemala.
