The Hannya Story

Hannya is a special and unique young girl. At only 9 years old, she is already showing strong interest in getting a better education. She currently attends a public school, where classrooms are overcrowded and teachers are under-appreciated. Hannya speaks the Maya language Tzu’tujil, Spanish and is eager to learn English.

In an effort to help this motivated youngster to come one step closer to fulfilling her ambition to excel academically, Hiptipico has promised to give all proceeds from her handmade jewelry collection directly into a fund to help her attend a local private school. At this school she will be able to learn English and get the proper attention she needs to be a strong voice working to develop her Maya community.

Why is this so important?
Hiptipico invests in all different types of artisans. From those who are surviving day-to-day and those, like Hannya, who will grow up to be influential change makers.


Statistics:

  • Every extra year of school increases productivity by 10-30%
