"My name is Mateo," he greets me in his native Que'chi language. Mateo Salam has the boyish looks of a gentle fourteen year old, yet the aspirations and vision of a Mayan elder.  Only eighteen years of age, Mateo came to the village of San Pablo after having completed his high school degree at the technical school, Julian Cho.

“Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) is the ideal partner… It is one thing to visit the SHI website and read the various reports and informational materials, but seeing the program in action was incredible. It is obvious that SHI is making a real difference in improving the lives of these farmers and their families.”
