Pueblo CLIC is a nonprofit website, which was created with the purpose of projecting the art, culture and natural beauty of San Lucas Toliman, located around Lake Atitlan.

By our project's nature, our approach is to focus on the total population, in promoting the good that is in it. At some point, we may make alliances with people interested in promoting their products or services.
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
Myths and Legends, Customs and Traditions, Gastronomy, the region's native language, art and cultural events.
What technologies and digital tools do you plan to use in the trainings?
Describe the connections that you or your organization have already established that will contribute to the success of the project.
Since 2010 we have been working with citizen journalism and therefore, we have the support of the population and the support of local organizations.
How many participants do you think will be involved in your project?
We hope to assemble a team of 20 people to conform part of the team responsible for taking pictures, looking for stories, write articles, cover events. So that together we can project and promote the municipality already mentioned.
Besides the microgrant funding, what other resources and support are you seeking for your project to ensure its success?
We have a semi-professional camera for audio, and we would use our cell phones. The project would need a video camera and a computer, and perhaps another camera
