These beautiful Christmas ornaments are made by our students at the orphanage Fundaninos in Guatemala as part of our Skills for Life vocational training program.

They have been studying woodworking and engineering for several years. They design the ornaments on a computer using Vetric Aspire, cut them out on a Shopbot CNC router, then sand, paint and package them.

As part of our entrepreneurial program, the students have invested their own money into making these, and all the profits go directly to them. They will deposit the majority of it in their personal bank accounts. Those funds will then be used by them for transformational purchases or to build their lives when they age out of the home.

In buying this ornament, you are encouraging them to voluntarily work, produce and sell, you are enabling them to take on a productive mindset that counteracts cycles of poverty.

You are doing more than just making a purchase, you are changing a life.

If you order by October 5th, your order will be couriered to the U.S. on the 6th and shipped promptly.
