Would you like to volunteer with Konojel? Contact us and we can start the process.
Our projects focus on the following areas:
- Nutrition – our Nutrition Program is our longest running program. Ideas for projects include workshops for mother’s of families, donating an improved ingredient, or teaching a workshop to our kitchen staff
- Education – our Children’s Enrichment Program works with 40 at-risk children, five days a week.
- Employment – the Sabor del Sol women’s cooperative works with indigenous women to grow their microbusiness. We also provide professional development opportunities for our employees and beneficiaries, striving to provide work opportunities for as many women in our community as we can.
Konojel means “All Together” in Kaqchikel, the Mayan dialect spoken in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala. That’s exactly our goal– bring people together to do incredible things. We firmly believe that we are more powerful when we come together for a common purpose.
