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.
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 over 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.
Where We Work
What We Do
Our goal at Sharing the Dream in Guatemala is to have a permanent place as an educational training center for our artisans. This facility would allow us to serve our elders, artisans, students and staff in one centrally located center.
