More Info

Our Mission Weave. Hope. Inc.'s mission is to promote a local and sustainable economic and educational circle in order to enhance the opportunities for academic advancement in the student and youth population for the Mayan village of Santa Catarina Palopó, Guatemala by providing support of traditional artisan crafts and the circulation of informational resources and learning support programs in a local library/community center that aids all levels of educational and community development. Weave. Hope. Inc. fills two specific needs in the village. It seeks to adapt and provide a market for these artisan creations as a means to increase a market for the women involved and provide an economic boost to the community as well as reinvesting the profit made on the sales into the support of the community library project. As a result, reinvesting in the village through educational resources and programs. Weave. Hope. Inc. hopes to continue to turn strings into opportunities for learning. The permanent presence of social institutions like our library contributes not only to the academic needs of students but also to the infinite possibilities and connections that literacy brings both artistically and critically to the hearts and minds of a community and its citizens. It is an integral player in social, economic and political opportunities. Talent abounds, but what is missing is this opportunity and the resources that maintain it. The sustainability of our project depends on donations and sales from individuals and organizations. If you are interested in helping us, you can contact Erin Conway (rinconcon@hotmail.com). Our public wish list is also open on amazon.com (search: Erin Conway) or shop www.etsy.com/rukuxnaoj to see a sampling of our items. The traditional weavings are bought directly from the weavers in order to support the local economy in Santa Catarina Palopó. 100% of the profits are invested in the purchase of new books. Below you will find a list of products and prices. We always coordinate with the principals of the local schools in order to select the most appropriate texts. We also ensure that our books have multicultural themes in order to make connections between our small community and the global community. Your generosity means so much. Thank you.
