Mission: Guatemala

The Kateri Tekakawitha Mission Fund was founded in 1997 when Kay Sweeney went to Guatemala to work as a volunteer helping in a religious community for Guatemalan Indigenous women. She was struck by the beauty of her surroundings -- the natural beauty and the beauty of the fabric woven by the Indigenous women. She soon discovered that these same women and their families were living very limited lives. Most of them had no education and could not speak Spanish. Many longed for an education and money to provide an easier life. To try to meet these needs the Kateri Tekakwitha Mission Fund was born.
