Social Impact

Wakami was born by recognizing that Guatemala is a country where dreams are big but opportunities are few. It all started when we reached communities and asked: What do you need? and the answer was “What we need is a source of income”. These words triggered endless questions, plans, projects that led us to create our formula for change


Our work in the communities starts from a dream. The groups of artisans draw what they dream with, what moves them… and this image becomes a reference throughout the process. “If we can see it, we can achieve it”

Our form of intervention in rural communities is done through three pillars:

Impact to date:

+2,000 empowered women to date
