This rural company is located in Candelaria, a community in Pastores Sacatepequez, 7 km from Antigua Guatemala. This is the first group of women who joined together to work with Wakami. These woman are symbol of change and development.
Before Wakami, in this community like so many others, it was not important for their daughters to study of have an education. It was expected that their only role was to be in the home caring for husbands and children. Now these women have overcome these barriers and support the education of their daughters and other girls within the community.
You can help a 7 girls and 3 boys in this community.
The Wakami Foundation serves to support the women, children and
families of our Wakami Communities.
These communities are led by women who struggle against a lack of
resources, a lack of opportunities and often against community
prejudices against women working and owning a business. The one
thing that matters most to our Wakami women is the education of their
children. By supporting their education, you are played a critical role in
improving the lives of their families and communities
