Qachuu Aloom

http://www.qachuualoom.org/

Based in the central Guatemala region of Rabinal, Qachuu Aloom is supporting young people to increase their knowledge of Maya Achí spirituality and culture as a continuing process of learning from their grandfathers, grandmothers, mothers, and fathers, and all others who came before them. By integrating the cultural concepts embodied in Maya Achí spirituality into their everyday lives, young people are better able to focus their life goals and fundamental purpose of their existence, while honoring the natural relationship with Mother Earth that makes it possible for Maya Achí people to live every day in harmony with the living seeds, soils, forests, and waters all around them.
