Almaya Fund

Almaya aims to provide members of the Trama Textiles cooperative with access to health & welfare services, professional development and adult & child education, to improve health outcomes and end the cycle of poverty in communities.


1. Donate to our collective Education Fund

2. Directly sponsor a student


In order to fully address the needs of its members and their communities, Trama Textiles established the Almaya Fund in 2019. As the sister organization to Trama Textiles, Almaya Fund focuses on providing access to healthcare and education services for the families of Trama Textiles members. 

Although Trama Textiles has been successful in providing fair wages for its cooperative members, a large proportion of the Indigenous population in the Western Highlands continues to live in extreme poverty with little access to health care services or education. 

By donating, you can help provide these communities with access to healthcare and opportunities for educational and professional development.



The Almaya Fund finances projects, through fundraising, based on the needs identified within the communities.

Based on the outcomes of an assessment carried out in 2019, Almaya aims to develop support services and opportunities for members of Trama Textiles cooperatives in the following areas:

1. Health and Well-being:  
  • Health Services
  • Nutrition
  • Vision Restoring
  • Oral Care
  • Family Planning
  • Cancer screenings
  • Access to safe water


    2. Training and Education for the weavers:
    • Weaving/Design workshops to continue to improve their skills
    • Spanish or Literacy skills
    • Financial literacy

    3. Scholarships and School Supplies for the weavers' children:
    • Basico and Diversificado (equivalent to middle and high school)
    • University
