THE STORY:

Cajolá Matters and so do you!

On December of 2014, we visted the town of Santa Cruz Cajolá in Guatemala. Cajolá is a town of 16,000 & 93% are indigenous Maya Mam.  Like many small towns across Central America, poverty is the reality. Cajolá is at the end of the spectrum with over 57% of its population in extreme poverty. Hunger is the everyday reality for thousands and we want to change this. The lack of access to basic human necessities touched our hearts and we want to do more than just feel sorry. For this, we call on you!

 

Cocina Comunitaria, in Cajolá, is a town project underway with the goal to feed hundreds of people a day. Folks at higher risk of abuse and starvation would be the primary focus of the project: kids & elderly.

Cocina Comunitaria is a big undertaking. It is a building that will house a dining hall and full operational kitchen hoping to make Breakfast and Dinner 4-5 times a week. The dining hall will be open to anyone in the community for free. This radical approach to extreme poverty is ambitious but possible and we want you to be part of it too.

Rosa Vicente, is our contact in Cajolá  and is leading the construction efforts. Every dollar that is donated goes directly to the building materials needed for the project. The project started in March 2015 ago and we hope to complete it by November 2015.

Donating for the construction of the Cocina is beyond Cajolá, you can make a difference, but together we can make a change!
