About UPAVIM (Unidas Para Vivir Mejor – United for a Better Life) :
UPAVIM is a self governed cooperative of women in La Esperanza, Guatemala that provides leadership opportunities, greater economic independence and education for the members and their families. It represents a beacon of hope and pride for many in La Esperanza.
Founded in 1989, UPAVIM creates and sells colorful, handcrafted products for markets around the world. Sales of UPAVIM’s fair trade goods directly support the cooperative, a full-day kindergarten through 6th grade school, daycare, and a Montessori-based preschool. UPAVIM’s success in La Esperanza has also fueled the development of a health clinic, tutoring program, local bakery, scholarship and tutoring program and more.
Facing poverty, crime and violence throughout their neighborhoods, the more than 60 women that represent UPAVIM find not only solidarity in a safe space but also a community of love, hope and purpose. They aspires to produce better lives for themselves, their families and future generations.
