The Humble Village Project

The Humble Village Project

At The Humble Village, we believe that when you educate and empower families, you bless humanity. We focus our efforts on women, who are the key to changing their families’ lives. We work with indigenous families of Mayan descent (the Q’eqchis), who live in the highlands of Guatemala on less than $1 per day. We provide them with urgently-needed nourishment, health care training and services, and education that leads to stability and the opportunity to pull themselves out of poverty. We teach simple, sustainable methods in our education and training.

Many indigenous Mayans living in rural areas are marginalized, and receive little or no help from their government. Few speak Spanish and they have extremely limited access to justice and health services.

It takes a village, sometimes more than a village. It takes the kindness and resources of others to help individuals and villages become self-sufficient and plan for a better future.

The Humble Village also knows as "Narú" in the local dialect, served the most vulnerable families of 116 communities.
