Tuik Ruch Lew’s mission is to implement sustainable solutions to the environmental, health, and development challenges which threaten the livelihood of the Maya people living in the Lake Atitlán Basin.
The Maya people experience the negative impacts of powerful economic forces on their natural resources, racial discrimination and disrespect of indigenous knowledge on a daily basis. As a grassroots organization, our intention is to accept financial support only from entities not participating in these practices.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELPOMENT GOALS
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the 17 objectives set by the UN in 2015 that address global challenges related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation and more. Each goal is broken down into multiple targets to guide governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to achieve each SDG by 2030. Check out our SDG Spotlight to read more about each goal, their respective targets, and the ways in which each of us can support progress towards a brighter future for all.
