La Nueva Independencia
La Nueva Independencia is a community embedded in the mountains of Unión Cantinil, in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. The coffee produced there is one of the best in the region. Despite being one of the communities with more needs, it is remarkable the desire the leaders have to overcome and work hard to improve the quality of education in the community. Although most of the adults did not attend school, they want their children to attend since they know education is the key to being successful as a community.
