Get Involved in Peña Blanca

Join Whole Planet Foundation in Peña Blanca, an impoverished, rural community in the Lake Atitlán region of Guatemala where Whole Foods Market sources coffee. To empower this community to lift itself out of poverty, Whole Planet Foundation and Grameen Trust initiated a microlending project here in 2006, and the next year Whole Foods Market Team Members began providing community service like teaching literacy skills and providing meals for the children of this Mayan community. We hope you will get involved and support this indigenous community too: Fund Pena Blanca school meals Fund the Pena Blanca elementary school Fund materials for carbon-efficient stoves for villagers
