Semilla Nueva has all the ingredients for success as a nonprofit: a tremendous knowledge of the context in which they work; a commitment to knowing and listening to their beneficiaries; a values-driven, honest, and humble approach; and a bright and caring staff. They, and the farmers they work with, deserve our support and encouragement as they continue to make a difference in the lives and livelihoods of Guatemalans.
