Swanson states, “My goal is to promote education so people can define development based on their own culture and life experience."
RWI creates educational opportunities to promote development as defined by local communities. We serve the Boca Costa region, focusing our efforts on a dozen local coffee-growing communities. RWI has provided over 30 university scholarships to date.
All donations are welcome. An amount as little as $25 goes far in rural Guatemala. All charitable contributions are tax deductible. Roots & Wings International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a tax id of 20-5890443.
Go to http://www.rootsandwingsintl.org to sponsor a student or buy coffee that also benefits the Pasac community in Guatemala. For more information on the Dec 10 event, please visit http://www.rootsandwingsintl.org/
