Women in Quetzaltenago once scoured the garbage dump for items to salvage and sell. Without any sources of income, it was their only means of earning a meager income to feed their children. At a community meeting, the villagers eagerly asked questions about the new opportunities brought about by Food For The Poor donor-funded projects.
Thanks to our generous donors who funded water and micro-enterprise projects, such as sewing machine initiatives, villagers now have hope. Not only do the new water projects provide water to drink, bathe and cook with, but women can also use it to earn income by doing laundry for others.
