CCC - Conscious Consorcio Clothing

Conscious Convergence + Consorcio de Asociaciones de Santiago

Conscious Convergence Clothing is finally born!
 
In Chukmuk  a little town outside Santiago destroyed from the  hurricane  Stan and the  Internal  war conflict  happened in Guatemala, this community suffered for social and natural disasters. We  recived a Rotary International grant to start a commercial sewing project with the Help of Lantzville Rotary  who who recommended Aldea Maya for the grant. We will be using a room in the Consorcio  de Associaciones women's coop to set up all the industrial machines. A new coop has been formed to run this project Conscious Clothing Consorcio, to run this project. This coop has 8 women and one man learning to sew. Conscious Convergence , is planning on running the majority of the clothing operation from this site. This is huge, as there are minimal ways to make a living in the highlands of Guatemala and this project will pay fair trade wages. The project is already running since September and we move forward since January 2016! For all us a is a big goal!
