Artesanias Nueva Vida is an independent organization


 founded by Maynor Hernandez Ajcalón to help young

 

 adolescents earn income to


 supplement their education.


 Artesanias Nueva Vida works


 with locally grown lumber to


 craft their products,including


 bowls, serving spoons,tea 


 spoons, salad serving utensils,


 picture frames and other


 specialty products. 




 The group was founded by two brothers who needed work to

  

 help them stay off the streets and focused on their school


 work.  They began to work with a few other young


 adolescents and decided to form a project focused on


 helping young adolescents facing the process of poverty.  The


 group consists of five members and have worked for the past


 four years with various adolescents


 who work outside the home to support


 their families, including young shoe


 shine boys who work in the local


 park.  



 The name Artesaanias Nueva Vida


 means New Life Artists and


 symbolizes a new life for the members


 of the group.   



 In the spirit of Fr. Greg Schaffer, the


 Taste of Guatemala purchases these


 products at the prices set by the


 producers of the products.  


 Your purchase of these products


 help us help these young adolescents


 help themselves.  If you are interested


 in any of these products, please contract
