Great news! Thanks to the lionfish gala dinners that took place on August 18th and 19th, we managed to raise funds to donate 5 study scholarships for one year to students from the community of El Quetzalito. Education is the only way to broaden the horizons in the people of the communities, making them able to pursue their dreams. These dinners were prepared by the Group of women of El Quetzalito, who worked hard for three days, to show that dreams do come true. We would like to thank all the people who attended this event, our partners and donors: El Quetzalito, Milly Bruderer, La Margaritas Culinary Academy, Guatevisión, La Cava de los Monjes, CONAP, Dipesca, FCG, MarFund, German cooperation through the KfW, Francis Bruderer, Raquel Miron and Otto Becker.

You can still be part of the change! Write to us via Inbox or by email to and ask as you can make your donation to take more scholarships to the communities of the Caribbean of Guatemala.
