Cultiva’s mission is to eradicate poverty; internally and externally in Guatemala. They mentor and teach people and families on how to garden, so that they can improve their family’s nutrition and lift themselves out of poverty. They truly create a better life for these families. The truth is that handouts don’t help in the long term. Handouts just foster dependence, and that leads to more hopelessness. This is why Cultiva focuses on mentoring families to foster independence so that people can help themselves long term. When people realize that they can help themselves, that changes everything.
At LAUT we are happy to support an organization that helps educate and inspire people to build their own future. We support the ideals of Cultiva, and are grateful that we can do our part to help keep Cultiva inspiring and encouraging the people of Guatemala.
