San Marcos La Laguna News Feed

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!

Supporting Eco Quilt Making in San Marcos La Laguna
Published 32 Days ago by Lauren M |

Meet Pazul Adri

She is a local woman living in San Marcos La Laguna who is providing for her family through the creation of artisan quilts. When supporting her with your purchase, you are supporting a woman entrepreneur and the sustainability of using recycled materials. 

The quilt is made of recycled fabric from traditional cortes worn as skirts by Guatemalan women. They are made by loom into fabrics known as Jaspe, which is a traditon that dates back many centuries. 

Most women keep their cortes as their traditional traje (clothing) most of their lives, yet with all clothing, overtime they become worn and tattered. Pazul is using the tattered worn fabrics to create  new blankets that provide beauty, warmth and tradition. 

Consider helping her build her buisness by purchasing a one of a kind quilt. Please feel free to reach out with any questions and to make the purchase.https://www.facebook.com/sandra.puzullopez

Very Very New born Puppies
Published 61 Days ago by Brenchell |

They are very very new born and I dont know if it would be wise to move them, but the place is very nasty. If someone has any advice of what is best to do please let me know. I am hoping the momy is looking for food and wondering if it would be a good idea to leave some dog food there for her and check on them later. They are by the pipes going to the lake next to the nature reserve in San Marcos.

Thank you, Whith your help they can find a house and food.

4 people need a ride to Sololá
Published 62 Days ago by Alex G |

Somebody can drive four local persons tomorrow to Sololá at 5:30am? They go to the hospital to donate blood for a person that got burned. Contact Don José 3195-5738  🦵🔥 

It would probably be needed to wait for them and bring them back if it’s possible, but if not, one ride would be fine.

 

We cover the gas expense.
