The Pulsera Project - UDHS Students Helping Others

24 February 2017 | Published in: Upper Darby High School Recent News

The Hispanic Culture Club, along with members of the National Spanish Honor Society, participated in a two week-long sale of bracelets, or “pulseras”, from the nonprofit organization, The Pulsera Project. Students sold hand woven bracelets that were made by artisans in Nicaragua and Guatemala.  

The Pulsera Project helps to empower these artisans and connects them to students in schools across the United States.  Proceeds are returned and benefit education, housing, healthcare and environmental programs for the Central American artists.

Upper Darby students sold a total of 287 pulseras which totals $1470!  According the Pulsera project, UDHS students sold enough pulseras for two full months of fair trade employment for artisans and they raised enough money to send a member of the artist cooperative to college classes for two years!  

Congratulations to all students involved who made a difference in the lives of these artisans!
