Education

Phalarope has constructed an aquaponic system to serve as a hands-on laboratory for students at Casa del Nino in Jocotenango, Guatemala. The aquaponic system will integrate a compost component and will be complemented with science and math lessons plans for all students in lower school.

Women’s Empowerment

Phalarope is working with 50 indigenous Mayan women who live in rural communities in Guatemala. Phalarope has conducted an baseline analysis of the type products they current produce, how they create them, materials used and the retail price they sell them products. This baseline assessment will help us decide with the women the product that can be competitive in the market locally, in the USA .
