To provide technical, material, and financial support to increase the productivity of indigenous organizations in the Western Highlands of Guatemala.
The vision of the organization is to form a cooperative center in the indigenous capital of Quezaltenango, uniting
various independent organizations in a coordinated and collaborative integral development program. HSP envisions its role as providing the needed technical and financial support in collaboration with North American funding sources to allow these organizations to fulfill their missions productively and to assist in the development of those program segments that are found to be deficient.
HSP also sponsors and delivers
SERVICE LEARNING TRIPS for college, high school, and church groups.
Participants visit Highlands villages and work with Mayans on various projects
such as stove building, reforestation, school arts projects, and so on. In
the evenings hear lectures on culture, business opportunities, and the
environment. For information, visit:
