NGO Lectures

The Rainbow became an important meeting place for local non-profits and NGOs over 11 years ago when the Evening Lectures /NGO Talks first began. The idea of the lectures/talks is to be a link between the NGO and people interested in getting involved with the great projects that work towards making a better Guatemala.

Every talk we host increases a NGOs public exposure as well as the probability that someone attending may decide to volunteer, donate money or fundraise for the charity.  Since hosting the first talk (Sue Patterson´s) we´ve had more than 50 local non-profits and NGO´s presenting!

A donation of Q25 is asked for to each person attending the talk, the donation given goes directly to the presenting NGO.

Tejidos Cotzal
Mar 26 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Tejidos Cotzal @ Rainbow Cafe

Tejidos Cotzal is a group of 42 Mayan women from San Juan Cotzal, Quiche, who are all passionate weavers. Cotzal was hit by the civil war worse than any other place in Guatemala and left so many families without fathers, brothers or husbands. The women had to take the initiative and unite to guarantee the survival of their families. They support each other and try to send their children to school by weaving.

In this presentation they will share how the cooperative works, the eco-tours, and show you the special weaving technique of their beautiful products.
