The Pulsera Project is a nonprofit organization that offers a free service-learning project and free educational materials to LatinX Clubs, Spanish Clubs, Hispanic Student Associations, and more. We partner with schools to sell handwoven "pulseras" made by artisans in Central America. Students learn about life in Latin America while raising funds that support employment, education, and other social impact programs for the artists & their communities. Getting your club involved with the Pulsera Project is 100% free and there is no requirement to sell any certain number of pulseras.

We Send Everything You Need

We provide everything you need to bring this unique activity to life, including a vibrant trifold photo display, informational and educational materials, videos, customizable posters, and enough pulseras (400-600) for your entire school!

 

No money is ever required to lead a pulsera sale, and any unsold bracelets can simply be sent back to us at the end of your sale with the pre-paid UPS label that we'll send you.

Works of Art

Each pulsera is a one-of-a-kind work of art and comes tagged with the photo & signature of the artist who made it, making it super easy for students to feel a connection to the people they're supporting. And the best part is that they each cost only $5!

Celebrate Central American Culture

Our artisans reflect the diversity of Central America. We work with female-led cooperatives, indigenous groups, permaculture advocates, and a broad range of activists who are making a difference in their communities.

 

By hosting a pulsera sale, you not only help create fair trade jobs but also amplify the importance of Central American people and the issues they confront.

 

Incorporating our videos or lessons into your pulsera sales helps break down stereotypes about Central America and showcase the work of many incredible activists.

Big Impact Abroad & At Home

The funds raised from your club's pulsera sale benefit countless Central Americans, raising money for scholarships, secondary education programs, healthcare, human rights issues, environmental projects, and social enterprises, in addition to providing employment for artisans in Guatemala and Nicaragua. 

 

On top of the impact abroad, pulsera sales change the lives of students in the U.S. as well, educating them about life in Central America while cultivating student leadership and awareness of global social issues, all within your school.
