Arts and Crafts Store

Our Workshop is a fertile training ground for beginner artisans from rural communities. The great abundance of natural materials of the region have allowed us to create original crafts that reflect the local culture and turn them into a line of unique products.

Most of the crafts created are available for sale and are wonderful memories unique in their design. To see them for yourself visit our store located in the Tangolunda area.

Dream Festival

The Dream Festival is organized in January every year by the Foundation and a group of local and foreign volunteers. It has now become a fixture in the Huatulco social calendar.

The Festival allows us to fundraise while promoting the work of the Foundation. A series of organized activities allow our benefactors and volunteers to meet and interact with many of the children from communities we support.

Huatulco Airport

With the support of the Huatulco airport authority we exhibit seasonal displays created by our artisans. These include a nativity set, an Easter set, a jungle, and a Dia de los Muertos scene featuring the famous catrinas of Guadalupe Posadas.

The sales of arts and crafts are a great way to spread the message of the Foundation.

Adopting a Rural School

To adopt a rural school means to support the construction or renovation and maintenance for the school, and to nurture the education of its students in the long term.

General Fund Donations

General Fund Donations are essential to our work, as they allow us to service schools that haven’t been adopted and to invest resources into planning and developing new projects prior to their adoption.

Our commitment to the Adopter

Many of our adopters like to play a more active role by establishing a continuous relationship with their school, getting to know the students and supporting them in multiple ways.

Adopters play a starring role at the school’s inauguration ceremony and they receive detailed reports and progress updates about their schools on an ongoing basis.
