The mission of Proyecto Itzaes is to provide educational resources for children and families in villages in Yucatán where traditional farming and fishing can no longer support families. We believe that the fundamental tools of literacy should be available to all. Our goal is to build sustainable community service programs that promote family-centered learning and respect Maya cultural heritage. Education will create new opportunities for children to fully realize their gifts in a changing world.
Proyecto Itzaes is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Last year, people like you helped to open three new PI libraries, send seven first-generation students to the University, brought school supplies to six villages, taught hundreds of children computer skills and changed lives in Yucatán.

Join Maya Help 2013
Please join Proyecto Itzaes in our goal of finding 1,300 new donors by 2014 who are willing to pledge $7 per paycheck to help children in Yucatec villages. Donations will allow these children to be given the opportunity to get the education necessary for successful participation in the changing economy. Your small donation, every other week, will build and spread sustainable, community service based educational programs.
