Things of My Very Own
Barefoot College is a non-profit organization that focuses on empowering indigenous women. Barefoot College works with a Fair Trade Coffee cooperative owned and operated entirely by indigenous women in Guatemala. After surviving a decade-long genocide, these resilient women are now creating a fair-trade, holistic economy through coffee production and sustainable agriculture techniques. Proceeds from sales go towards helping indigenous women led efforts to promote education, health, sustainable agriculture, women’s rights and much more!
