Meso Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to empowering the native people of Guatemala.
We connect with locals and stand as a voice for those who are voiceless, and with strength for those who need support.
The right tools or specific skills can mean the advantage that facilitates equal opportunities.
We create better opportunities through our social businesses - it creates a better tomorrow for all involved.
A better Guatemala
"We dream of a country where the resource of human labor is honored, respected, and not exploited. Where the rise of technology is received as a respite, and gives way to business opportunities with creative and holistic solutions that turn into meaningful jobs. Where children have the opportunity to access an education that stimulates, shelters, and prepares them to lead and problem solve for the current world affairs. Where ancient wisdom of food and land is restored and respected. Where the natives of the land are honored for their past and present strengths in being the keepers of a culture that has marveled scientists for thousands of years."

Our foundation isn’t new, but it has definitely evolved over the past 20 years. As we learn and grow, we find better ways to leverage projects and social businesses that are able to impact more lives across Guatemala.
