Fair Trade from Guatemala
These garlands are handmade in Guatemala by a women's cooperation in the La Esperanza slums in Guatemala City. These are paid according to fair trade standards so that they can build a good life with their families.
Fair production in Guatemala
The Esperanza collection is handcrafted in Guatemala by a cooperative of women in the La Esperanza slums in Guatemala City. The women get paid according to fair trade standards so that they can build a good life with their families.
UPAVIM is a cooperative of and for women from La Esperanza, a district in southern Guatemala City. La Esperanza, meaning "hope", originated in the 1980s, during the civil war in Guatemala. Thousands of refugees from the countryside then settled on the outskirts of the capital. The huts from the beginning have now been replaced by stone houses, but there are still many social problems in La Esperanza. From poverty and unemployment to violent drug gangs.
Better quality of life
UPAVIM's goal is to improve the quality of life of women and their families. At the cooperative they can count on education, employment, a day care center and healthcare. There are more than 80 mothers and housewives working. These are widows, women who have been abandoned by their spouses or are confronted with alcoholism and / or domestic violence. Often they are the only cost winner.
UPAVIM's activities are among others financed by the sale of artisan products. The Esperanza collection of MoreThanHip is a good example of this. Most products made by the cooperative find their way to the United States and Canada. Upavim is therefore a member of the Fair Trade Federation, the organization promoting fair trade in the US.
