Find something you are passionate about, practice it in the most adventurous place possible on earth, and be certain it helps others. - Diane Sawyer

I believe social change happens from the ground up. My mission is to support mission-driven organizations with the talent, resources, and vision necessary to impact that change.

My obsessions: Guatemala, travel, photography, social innovation

The Lost Photos of Guatemala

A powerful set of photos by Jean-Marie Simon that take place during the 1980s civil war. The photographer explains: “They take place at the height of internal armed conflict in the 1980s when military repression was so intense that Amnesty International denounced Guatemala as “a government program of political murder.”

This is even more telling:
“Fifteen years after the signing of the Peace Accords, Guatemala’s war is a lost memory for the under-thirty generation that today constitutes seventy percent of its population. The reasons for this yawning gap in historical memory are self-evident: a high illiteracy rate, an under-funded and uninspired educational system, and seven civilian governments invested in inertia and corruption have resulted in a country bereft of affordable and user-friendly resources that visually document this crucial period. Indeed there is more information on Guatemala’s ancient Mayan culture than there is on the civil war that claimed over 100,000 lives in under a decade.”
