PROYECTO DE NIÑAS MAYAS
We at Corazón Maya Spanish School have decided that we cannot remain with arms crossed waiting for external solutions to these problems. As part of our community, we need to be active participants in instituting social change. Therefore, every person that chooses to study at Corazón Maya helps to support our community project. We are currently assisting eighty local indigenous girls, from low-income families. Since we believe that the lack of education is the largest problem and the root of many of the aforementioned social phenomena, we have decided help pay for the education of these girls. By investing in their futures, we hope that they will eventually be able to help change the current situation of their families and of our community.
In addition to paying for the books and other school necessities, Corazón Maya Spanish School also gives the families a monthly stipend to help pay for other costs of living. Depending on the family, this money is used to purchase things such as food, clothes or medicine.
