Meet our artisan Maria!
Maria started working with us at Women of Hope Guatemala in 2013 on a seasonal basis, mostly to make our Nativity ornaments. Over the next couple of years she began to work on more designs. Mid 2017 we asked her to come on as our teacher for young women participating in a training program. Her sweet, patient spirit is a huge asset as she teaches all of our inexperienced beading artisans. She loves her co-workers and encourages them in all areas of life.
Maria's birthday is August 30th.
We will be updating her story in the coming months.
