24 E. Congress Parkway, Chicago

Enjoy Latin American sandwiches and savories while learning about empowering Guatemalan women through economic development and fair trade sales.

Naomi Czerwinskyj is the product manager at MayaWorks and has worked for the fair trade organization for almost 4 years. As an anthropology student, she participated in an independent study project while living in an indigenous village in Guatemala for a semester. In the village, she experienced the deep poverty and lack of job opportunities that many Guatemalans, especially women, face. This experience motivated Naomi to work directly with a nonprofit working to empower Guatemalan women through economic development.

Join us to hear her stories and for the opportunity to purchase cool and unique fair trade items from MayaWorks!

Cost: WorldChicago Members, $25; Non-members, $30
