GUATEMALA - P.E.T. provides hand-cranked carts to Guatemalans with disabilities to help them earn a living. These carts can effectively navigate places where there are no roads.
Before, 31-year-old Antonia Lopez crawled to the streets to beg to support her children. Now, with a PET, Lopez can make money for her family without having to beg.
How you can help the PET project and the culture that crawls.
Sponsor a $25 ice chest or a $250 PET by mailing your donation to:
1908 Heriford Road

The P.E.T. Project is in need of people to do grant writing and computer work.
