What We Do

The Mayan Health and Education Project began in 2000 and is a people-to-people project to help the Maya of Guatemala in their struggle against poverty. Medical missions have been visiting a rural community in the Guatemalan highlands since 2002 to provide medical aid, disease prevention education and nutritional supplementation to Huixoc and its neighboring villages.

In 2005, a junior high school was established which now graduates up to thirty students from grade 9 every year. The project has introduced computers and internet access to the village. We are now working with the community to build a computer lab. Our future plans include buying some land to build a proper school/community center for the village.
