Peace by Piece’s Guatemalan partner, Itza Wood, exists to create jobs and foster positive social impact in a place where the poverty is crushing, the Northern Petén Jungle. Itza Wood is linking families to a future with hope and well-being by creating local, sustainable employment. All purchases benefit The Jungle School, a safe place where 400 students come daily from 9 local villages.
Since the earthquake in 2010, Peace by Piece partner, Deux Mains, has created over 415,000 hours of work for the people of Haiti (the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere). Through the purchase of their products, the direct effect on lives is extraordinary. A few of the things achieved by participants employed by Deux Mains include 92% increase in food security and 53% average decrease in debt. Over 90 people have been transitioned into safe housing and more than 20 local schools are supported.
Over 45,000 trees were planted by Itza in the region before they ever cut a tree. All wood is native, sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
