JCI Zona Altos

To empower local female artisans of the Highlands Chiapas, JCI Zona Altos created the program  “Avo’onton: Weaving Dreams” which supports the cultural tradition of ornate weaving as a means of economic development. Not only did the program encourage the economic independence of indigenous women, but it also shared the cultural, artistic practices of the local people.
