Join Maria Xoch from Asociacion Maya in Sololá, Guatemala who will be participating in two special events this month in Toronto and St. Jacobs.
Maria will be a featured guest at the annual IntiRaymi Festival in Christie Pits this Saturday and Sunday. We’ll have beautiful scarves, wallets and more from Asociacion Maya; fairly traded Café Justicia; and jewelry from Casa Milagro.
And on Saturday, June 25, Maria will be giving weaving demonstrations at the Eco-Coffee Corporation in downtown St. Jacobs, Ontario.
At both events, donations will be accepted for for the El Triunfo Education Project which provides an affordable education for the sons and daughters of weavers from Asociacion Maya through the establishment of a middle school and a high school in the village of El Triunfo, Guatemala. Details on how to make a donation to the project are online at https://guatemalaschool.wordpress.com
