MERCADO GLOBAL INC's Fundraiser:

A Library for Indigenous Mayan Children

MERCADO GLOBAL INC's Photo

BENEFITING: MERCADO GLOBAL INC

THE STORY:

In Guatemala, only 1 in 10 indigenous girls has the chance to go to school.

Mercado Global’s mission is to change this statistic by empowering women artisans through access to international markets, increasing what they can earn so they can make sure all of their children have access to an education.

Mothers and daughters from the Bay Area are giving children a step up in this effort by helping fund a library for artisans’ children. While their mothers work, children will be read to, something many children never experience as many of their parents are themselves illiterate.

This space for children will be their first step on their path to education and a better life.
