“Konojel means “All Together” in Kaqchikel, the Mayan dialect spoken in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala. That’s exactly our goal — bring people together to do incredible things. We firmly believe that we are more powerful when we come together for a common purpose.”
What Does Konojel Offer?
Konojel has been serving the local community of San Marcos La Laguna Guatemala for many years through their nutritional, educational and empowerment programs.

Our Children’s Enrichment Program works with 40 at-risk children, five days a week.
The Sabor del Sol Women’s Cooperative works with indigenous women to grow their micro-businesses. We also provide professional development opportunities for our employees and beneficiaries, striving to provide work opportunities for as many women in our community as we can.
