Description: Our Design a Difference Program showcases the potential for global partnership between women designers, rural artisans, and consumers to "build a better world" through design and sales collaboration. Your support helps us equip 380 women in rural Guatemala with the skills they need to build their community businesses, sell to the U.S. market, and break the cycle of local poverty. At the same time, your support will help us recruit more U.S. designers and retailers to source socially-responsible products, magnifying this program's impact to an increasing number of women and families across the globe.

Description: Mercado Global is a non-profit organization that empowers female artisans in Latin America to become agents of change in their own communities. Mercado Global helps rural women successfully connect to sales opportunities in the U.S., lifting their families out of poverty and gaining the skills and support they need to address other local challenges.
Our distinctive Fair Trade collections start with designers partnering with indigenous women artisans to develop unique creations that fuse exceptional Mayan craftsmanship with modern design.

Description: Mercado Global staff and volunteers conduct HIV/AIDs training in Chuacruz, Guatemala.
As many of our partner artisans cannot read or write, trainers often use games to help communicate an idea visually. The game also serves as an icebreaker when dealing with difficult topics such as HIV/AIDS.
In this game, the cat (center) must be prevented from catching the mouse. The group holds hands to keep the cat outside (or inside) of the circle. The game was used to illustrate how HIV can infect the body. The training was conducted in the local language of Kakchiquel and translated into Spanish for visitors.
