Partner in Guatemala


MUIXIL is a grassroots organization that promotes Indigenous women's rights in Guatemala. With MADRE, MUIXIL works with women to build their skills, know their rights and step up as community leaders.

MUIXIL fights hunger in El Quiché, a community struggling with poverty. In partnership with MADRE, MUIXIL provides chickens to Indigenous women, a sustainable source of income and food for women and their families.

MUIXIL also works with MADRE to operate a weaving cooperative. The cooperative allows Ixil women to share traditional weaving practices with a younger generation of women, strengthening the Ixil culture and community. What's more, women sell the weaving items and raise money to sustain their families.
