Your impact

La Guajira is the largest dry area in Colombia. They lack of rain makes it really difficult to find the most basic need, water! They rely on a wind mill and a few basic wells. Bottled water is expensive and difficult to access from the village. 

 Your purchases support Sandra’s family business to make a decent living while preserving indigenous ancestral techniques.

We believe work gives a sense of achievement and empowers communities. Work can break the poverty cycle!
