Feature story: Local effort to help Guatemalan women
Guatemalan women of Mayan heritage surround Portola Valley resident Sadie Bronk, in the blue headband, who raised $10,000 to fund a new computer lab in the village of Chuacruz in 2010. Behind Sadie is Ruth DeGolia, co-founder of the fair-trade nonprofit Mercado Global that helps indigenous women artisans in Guatemala design high-quality fashion accessories for North American markets.
