ABOUT EDÉN

Our Entrepreneurs. 

The Edén entrepreneurs are creating a new and inclusive reality in Guatemala by developing a model of labor inclusion that prioritizes individual strengths, flexible work hours, and community education.  Although most of the team didn't have access to education or therapy growing up, they are now leading the community and demonstrating that they can thrive in their work with confidence, all while shining a light on the topic of disability exclusion and isolation in Guatemala.
