“The Cofradia (Catholic organization) never once met in the same room with [the Mayan community] to discuss issues. For the first time ever, we are now meeting face to face with them.”

The Mayan population residing in Guatemala are a people abounding with culture, heritage, and tradition. In 2013, HWPL traveled to Guatemala in an effort to reach out to the Mayan community.

Furthermore, within the Pueblo of Churrancho, Guatemala, HWPL arranged a meeting between Santos Alvarado, the leader of over 8000 Mayans, and the Catholic Cofradia — a meeting that had no precedent until that point. HWPL provided a common ground for the Mayans, a historically marginalized population, to discuss relevant issues and their solutions with the Cofradia in a bilateral manner.
