- Firefly provides employment and training in comfortable working conditions and fair wages to the indigenous people of Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala. They have taken many of the traditional Guatemalan skills and transformed them into jewelry-making skills. The workshop is spacious and filled with skylights and windows. Every artisan has their own work table. It is built around a plant and flower filled courtyard. When you give people tools and market access to lift themselves out of poverty, they don't want to leave home.
