Thank you for purchasing our products.  Each product is handmade by artisans in Guatemala.  This not only provides fair wages and commerce opportunities, proceeds directly support UPAVIM's elementary school in La Esperanza, on the outskirts of Guatemala City.  This school with extended hours provides a safe place for kids to learn and grow and keeps them off the streets and safe.

UPAVIM is an acronym for the Spanish phrase, "unidas para vivir mejor".  This means "united for a better life".  The women in Guatemala chose this as their organization name.  Together they run and operate the crafts division in Guatemala, a bakery, and a school all in efforts to improve their lives.
