The word Makaua in the ancient Aztec language of N'huatl has two meanings: 'from hand to hand' or 'the act of giving a hand" - placing great importance on communities working together. Over 500 families have been part of this project which has allowed communities to earn a steady, dignified income and become a part of this beautiful story.
