The air smelled of rotting - well, everything unimaginable. As vultures circled the blocks of garbage, children ran around without shoes as their relatives passed out in ditches. Preteen girls exchanged more than glances with truck drivers. Yet, a simple and colorful mural in the middle of the chaos portrayed a vision of hope.
I created these products inspired by trips to a community living inside the now-enclosed Managua city dump and a girls' rescue home. This home creates a voice for these desperate children and a door to aide their families still in extreme poverty. All profits from your purchase go the YMCA Guatemala Project to help more children in Latin America have a safe place!
