Sanik Scholars

In 2012, the Sanik Cooperative decided to take an additional step towards investing in the future. As a group, they decided to save part of the proceeds from their sales and place them in a scholarship fund for their children. In rural Guatemala, it is common that children are unable to attend school because their families cannot afford supplies, transportation, or tuition costs for secondary school. This is particularly true for families in rural, indigenous communities. The Sanik artisans chose to dedicate the fund to providing high school scholarships and primary school supplies for the children of the Sanik weavers. A portion of each sale of the Sanik Scarf is dedicated to building the Sanik Scholar Fund. The past year's proceeds from the Sanik Scarf raised $500 and provided two students one year of free secondary school education and plenty of school supplies for the younger students.
