The Story

EVENT DATE: Mar 08, 2018

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Mar 09, 2018

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Mar 31, 2018

At Mercado Global, we are profoundly lucky to collaborate with female artisans and their families throughout the Guatemalan highlands. Each and every day, we are struck not only by their incredible artistic ability, but also by their tenacity—by their dedication to their craft and to their families alike.

#WomenForward takes this dedication even further. With your collaboration, we are supporting our partner artisans to gain meaningful leadership experience and to build self-esteem—all of which strengthen and unite families and communities across Guatemala.

By donating this International Women's Day, you are providing access to our Community-Based Education program in rural Guatemala. These trainings will equip artisans with the tools they need to grow as leaders within their families, communities and beyond.

 

$250 Provides leadership training for ten women

$500 funds one month of travel to over twenty communities for two artisans trainers

$1,000 Provides leadership training for forty women

 

Here are 2 ways to make #WomenForward a movement not only on International Women’s Day, but for generations to come:

1- Contribute to a growing movement of female leaders.

2- Start your own fundraiser above!
