Mujeres de Maiz Opportunity Foundation Overview
We are dedicated to partnering with and empowering indigenous women in Chiapas, Mexico, by providing them with access to education. Our goal is to help break the cycle of poverty, build self-esteem, and create positive role models.
In August of 2013, we will be welcoming 24 girls and women on scholarship. We are funding three full year children's programs to strengthen academic skills, develop creativity and foster environmental stewardship. We also fund an adult literacy program, now in its second year. We fund workshops, provide eye exams and glasses, toothbrushes and toothpaste. We have donated a laptop to each community. We have just completed our capital campaign which has enabled the cooperative to fulfill a dream of their own center and a legacy for their daughters. Our new composting toilet project is underway in 3 communities.
