Welcome to San Marcos La Laguna's open source website, where many projects are working towards the same goal: helping our eclectic community to heal, regenerate and thrive!
Born in response to the Coronavirus' COVID-19 Pandemic, the Open Institute began hosting this site for free, to support and collaborate with the municipal government, the town's health center, local NGO's, the business sector, and countless individuals.
Currently the site's most urgent task is securing the health and food supply of the town's inhabitants during the pandemic and you will find links to the various groups involved on the right hand menu. The two buttons with the COMRED logo are the town's collective food security and health efforts, and the rest are other projects also making excellent contributions to these efforts. Check them out!
You can donate either on the Open Institute's pages with PayPal or credit card, or you can click through to each organisation's own website. Many thanks for your support, which helps the health and nutrition of the 815 Kakchikel families in San Marcos La Laguna.
Looking beyond the current crisis, we are developing this site as a unique platform and toolbox to further the town's development, regeneration and resilience, with the help of the Open Institute team.
Thank you for for your time, energy and solidarity - onward and upward together!
