We are proud to support a special initiative in a small, Kaqchikel Maya women’s cooperative in Guatemala. This initiative, which is named “Weave of Hope, was discovered by Dr. Beth Wiedel and Leslie Giguere, produces woven products created out of centuries-old process that has been handed down for generations. The women of this initiative seek to become more financially independent through the sale of these woven products and, at the same time, teach their younger generations their weaving techniques.
The Weaving Women and Their Families
To support Weave of Hope, Madison Women’s Health purchases beautifully hand-woven bags that will be presented to all of our newly pregnant patients. These bags will provide a constant reminder of the help we can provide to other women, even across the world.
