LUTW works with rural indigenous Mayan communities in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Since 2006, solar home systems have become an alternative to burning kerosene in wick lamps and travelling long distances to charge cell phones. Project work has helped villagers become more self-sufficient and provided job opportunities for some in the community.

Below are pictures and a map, which highlight recent and upcoming projects.
