Help Me Paint My Future!
Children's Project of the Xetawal Painters of San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala
This project is the creation of two painters, brothers Jose & Henry Mendez, who realized that some of the children who hung around their art gallery to watch and talk were interested in learning to paint, but also that they were children without active fathers, due to death, divorce or alcoholism. Additionally, that their mothers were struggling to raise these children on minimal resources.
They support the project on a percentage of the sales of their paintings from their gallery, by giving benefit events, and on the donations of visiting travelers.
