Mujeres de Maíz (Women of Corn) Opportunity Foundation is a registered non-profit tax-exempt [501(c)3] organization based in Sequim, Washington.


We are dedicated to partnering with and empowering indigenous women in Chiapas, Mexico, by providing them with access to education. Our goal is to help break the cycle of poverty, build self-esteem, and create positive role models.


Alternative Gifts International has been an amazing resource for us. Here is the video that Linda and Judith made for them in Chiapas in August, 2013.
