We work in communities to shift cultivation to higher value forest products, planting over 50,000 hardwood trees and cacao plants, which could provide millions of dollars in the long and short-term.
We are building a more creative, educated, and prosperous Guatemala
New Roots Foundation believes in having a direct, positive impact on the lives of visiting and local artists, young leaders, and the communities in which we work.
Our diverse programs and projects are designed with holistic and human-centered approaches at their core. We pull in local experts, brainstorm with passionate partners, and iterate with constant feedback - whether it be from a rural farming community or a curator of contemporary art.
From opening La Nueva Fábrica to planting cacao, we work in communities who trust us, in ways that are environmentally and programmatically sustainable, and which yield both long and short-term opportunities for Guatemala.
