Walk-A-Mile Fundraiser: Featuring Laura

Walk-A-Mile Fundraiser: End Malnutrition and Support Women in Guatemala

A year ago, a big hearted woman walked into the village of San Marcos and up the big hill to visit Konojel for the first time. Mallory Brown brought with her a videographer and an opportunity. As an impact storyteller and fundraiser, Mallory was filming a series of 26 mini-documentaries of women-lead initiatives around the world to solve problems in their local communities.

Over the next two days there was a lot of laughter and more than a few nerves, as Mallory and her team followed Laura Sancoy-Perez through her work at Konojel and told the story of need and triumph that exist side by side in San Marcos La Laguna. What emerged is the story in the video above, and an international push to grow the reach of our organization and raise the funds the women need to continue their work creating jobs and opportunity for women, providing meals to the most at-risk members of our community, and educational support to the children.

Every time I watch the video it brings tears to my eyes.

We are on day 10 of a 30 day push to raise $26,000…

So far we have raised $17,227!

Here’s your challenge:

  1. WATCH the video
  2. DONATE!
  3. SHARE and ask your friends to donate!

Konojel means “All Together” and all together we CAN end malnutrition in our community… but we need your help!
