We dream of a healthier, happier, more prosperous Guatemala.


We are a Guatemalan-American non-profit foundation leveraging education + business to empower the native people of Guatemala.

Join Our Movement

We remain steadfast in our commitment to Guatemala’s prosperity. These four core pillars serve as our guiding principles, ensuring unity and focus throughout our organization.


Racial, economic, and social oppression are still prevalent in modern day Guatemala. It is time to break these ancient chains of oppression.

Conserve and Preserve

As we advance with technology and grow as a society we want to be mindful to conserve and preserve our culture and natural environment.


The right tools, and skills can mean the advantage that facilitates equal rights and opportunities.


Leveraging the right partners, investments, and social businesses is how we create opportunities to a better tomorrow.
