"I am like a drop of water on a rock. After drip, drip, dripping in the same place, I begin to leave a mark, and I leave my mark in many people's hearts."

Rigoberta Menchu

Here at GYV, we are in the business of positive change. Our mission is to touch the hearts of as many people as possible, and we want you to be part of our efforts to make a difference. With every purchase, we will GYV a portion of our proceeds to charity. Our passion for Mesoamerican staples, voices, flavors, and fragrances will guide our efforts to find and support organizations who are nurturing and improving the communities that inspire us.

 

Current Charity Highlight:

Fondo Guadalupe Musalem

https://www.fondoguadalupemusalem.org/

 

Fondo Guadalupe Musalem is a foundation that supports and empowers young women, mainly from indigenous communities, as they pursue an education. The ethical values that Fondo Guadalupe Musalem instills in these young women serve as the foundation for their personal development. FGM has been operating in Oaxaca, Mexico for over 20 years, making a difference in countless lives of indigenous women in the region. Founded in the honor of Guadalupe Musalem Mehry, an academic and researcher who fought for social justice and equity for the women of Mexico, FGM has continued her tradition of raising up young women towards success. Organizations like this are fundamental in helping underfunded communities, and GYV young people a reason to pursue their dreams, in their own communities.

 

Please visit our blog where we will share scents, flavors, voices, colors, and cultures from each region in Mesoamerica.  We also invite you to share your own experiences and tell us how we can better "drip, drip, drip” to make a difference and leave a mark in the hearts of many.
