For example, we’ve recently partnered with the Australian packaging company Detmold Group/Detpak. They heard about the innovative work we are doing to improve the lives of coffee farmers and their communities in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. The company has launched a line of hot cups called “Coffee Origins.” The line is a celebration of coffee and traditional art from coffee yielding regions including Guatemala. Through this partnership, 5% of all proceeds from their Coffee Origins line sales will go to support Pueblo a Pueblo’s programs.
The international connections don't end there. Pueblo a Pueblo is also working with the Guatemala Families Association in England. The GFA is an organization of families that have adopted children from Guatemala. Visitors from GFA often come to Santiago Atitlan to visit our programs they have supported and observe our beneficiary schools.
