Ixim Spirit of Solidarity

Founded in 2001

Ixim Spirit of Solidarity is a transnational ministry that fosters mutually enriching Christian relationships between the people of Nebraska and Guatemala through sharing of our humanity, faith and resources. Ixim, pronounced "ee-sheem", is the Mayan word for corn, a staple of Guatemala and a livelihood of Nebraska. This represents the common goal of forming relationships between the people of the Archdiocese of Omaha, Nebraska, and the Diocese of Huehuetenango, Guatemala.
