Thanks for all the positive notes from our Region Founders!
Below are a few selected testimonials:
"This is fantastic news! I have always believed that the highest expression of a country's culture is found in its art - local materials made into jewelry, religious items and other articles for daily use. In our world of mass-produced and throw-away items, these handmade unique products become even more special, and it is important that we keep such artistry alive. I have not been to Guatemala yet, and opening this region will give me a chance to bring some of the 'flavour' of this part of the world to my home. Perhaps one day there might even be a Novica office in the Philippines. My own country has beautiful handicrafts just waiting to be shared with the world. Thank you."

"I am a long-time fan and loyal customer of Novica. Every Christmas I shop Novica's website for everything from stocking stuffers to special gifts. Because I live on a disability income, the reasonable prices and gift points make for such an affordable shopping experience that I save all year to be able to shop exclusively around the Novica "world". I am proud to help Novica continue its wonderful mission, I wish I could do more. I will contribute to the fund every time I make a purchase. Thank you to all the beautiful souls who work with you to bring me the opportunity to purchase such precious keepsakes."

"Those of us blessed to live in countries where most people can find employment to provide for their families must work hard to ensure that everyone, everywhere, has the same chance. When we help others to become independent, we all benefit. The faster we can do this, the more lives will be saved. We owe it to all the children to make this world a better place."

"I have a very good friend who is from Guatemala City originally and along with another friend, we are helping a women's co-op, NuevoAmanecer, near Atitlan, try to create a sustainable living making and selling beautiful jewelry in their remote village. From these women's stories and much else I have read and heard, NOVICA in Guatemala would be truly appreciated and could really help many artisans sell their products and make a living with dignity, respect, pride and joy. Congratulations to NOVICA's upcoming new office and to all of the artisans who will then be connected with customers all over the world. Keep up the excellent work!"
