San Marcos La Laguna News Feed

Welcome to San Marcos La Laguna's open source website, where many projects are working towards the same goal: helping our eclectic community to heal, regenerate and thrive!

Born in response to the Coronavirus' COVID-19 Pandemic, the Open Institute began hosting this site for free, to support and collaborate with the municipal government, the town's health center, local NGO's, the business sector, and countless individuals.

Currently the site's most urgent task is securing the health and food supply of the town's inhabitants during the pandemic and you will find links to the various groups involved on the right hand menu. The two buttons with the COMRED logo are the town's collective food security and health efforts, and the rest are other projects also making excellent contributions to these efforts. Check them out!

You can donate either on the Open Institute's pages with PayPal or credit card, or you can click through to each organisation's own website. Many thanks for your support, which helps the health and nutrition of the 815 Kakchikel families in San Marcos La Laguna.

Looking beyond the current crisis, we are developing this site as a unique platform and toolbox to further the town's development, regeneration and resilience, with the help of the Open Institute team.

Thank you for for your time, energy and solidarity - onward and upward together!

A bit anxious and nervous to see who was going to show up, but very happy nonetheless. This was the feeling that came, as we took the first step, into what we perceive as a dream being manifested.

Dead dog in front of my door
Published 47 Days ago by Alex G |

Could you imagine the frustration that comes with walking out off your front door and finding a dead dog, when the rest of the week you hustle to protect them? 

Well that happened to me and other people several years ago, when the local municipality killed hundreds of them, and pile them up in the main street, becoming the first dog holocaust of Lake Atitlan. I hope this time, history does not repeat again.

Supporting Eco Quilt Making in San Marcos La Laguna
Published 90 Days ago by Lauren M |

Meet Pazul Adri

She is a local woman living in San Marcos La Laguna who is providing for her family through the creation of artisan quilts. When supporting her with your purchase, you are supporting a woman entrepreneur and the sustainability of using recycled materials. 

The quilt is made of recycled fabric from traditional cortes worn as skirts by Guatemalan women. They are made by loom into fabrics known as Jaspe, which is a traditon that dates back many centuries. 

Most women keep their cortes as their traditional traje (clothing) most of their lives, yet with all clothing, overtime they become worn and tattered. Pazul is using the tattered worn fabrics to create  new blankets that provide beauty, warmth and tradition. 

Consider helping her build her buisness by purchasing a one of a kind quilt. Please feel free to reach out with any questions and to make the purchase.https://www.facebook.com/sandra.puzullopez

Collars Needed
Published 103 Days ago by Alex G |

The dogs are getting fed but now they need to be identified, because of control reassons. For that matter, collars will be needed in order to know which dogs are being fed on a daily basis and eventually take them to a more competente veterinarian for further evaluations.
