Belize Women's Pottery Cooperative

Location: San Antonio, Belize | All Central America & Caribbean Projects ›

About the project: The Belize Pottery Cooperative in San Antonio was formed by the local The San Antonio Women’s Group, to encourage women in the region to share their traditional knowledge with visitors and earn income that will support their families. G Adventures travelers will be invited to purchase handicrafts and try their hand at ancient pottery making techniques with a group of female Mayan artisans. Without a link to the tourism industry there are few opportunities for women’s employment beyond domestic service. 

Why this project needs you: With help from G Adventures, Planeterra will help build an outdoor workshop area where travellers can participate in pottery lessons and learn more about local traditions. Please help support this project by donating to our PLANET Her Campaign.
