Mayan Hands: Weaving a Brighter Future, Part One on You Tube

In 2007, with the expert direction of Monica Aldana and the cooperation of many others, Mayan Hands produced a film which is posted on You Tube in four parts.

I think you will enjoy watching this first section of the film. It was created after Hurricane Stan devastated some villages throughout Guatemala and is a big thank you to those who helped during that time.

Watch this! You will see some familiar faces. It will bring Mayan Hands to life for you...

Thank you to Anne and Mark's son Dan for posting this to the web. Big shout out to the Kelly-Van Wormers.

Mayan Hands is a fair trade organization founded in 1989 that partners with talented Mayan weavers in their quest to bring their families out of extreme poverty. These women and their families are able to continue to live within the culture they cherish. In this video, weavers talk about their lives, their work, their hopes and dreams, and the difference that Fair Trade has made to them, their families, and their communities.

I am filled with gratitude after the trip...
