Empowering Women in Guatemala through Fashion with a New York Twist
In the heart of the red zones of Guatemala City, a transformative social program is creating opportunities and empowering local women. Garments Guatemala’s “#proyectoconcausa” is making a difference in the lives of these women, enabling them to generate income from the comfort of their homes while instilling a sense of purpose and community.
Recently, this project had the honor of receiving a very special visitor: a fashion designer from New York. This designer, with a long-standing career in the fashion industry, took a keen interest in Garments Guatemala’s unique approach to crafting products and their commitment to empowering women. The visit not only provided her with the opportunity to learn about the process behind the products but also allowed her to connect with the women who are behind each purse, garment, and item crafted with love and dedication.
