I am amazed at what this organization is able to accomplish for the indigenous communities of Guatemala. They provide hope for the poorest of the poor in these communities. I am proud to be a donor and can rest assured that every penny I donate is being put to good use. The dedication of this organization is inspiring to say the least.

Mayan Families is an amazing grass roots group. I have taken a group of veterinarians and volunteers for the past three years where we perform 4 days of spay and neuter clinics. We also work with a local veterinarian and the Guatemalan vet students. We have performed 417 surgeries over the past 3 years and plan to continue every year. They have done an awesome job in creating awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering the animals as well as the importance of treating animals humanely. The MF founders, staff and volunteers are all hands on during our week stay. It is amazing all that they accomplish and the dedication that they have for the people and the animals of Guatemala.

I have seen the results of this organization when I return each year and see a decrease in street animals as well as I see the results when I receive letters from my sponsored students and see them thriving in school.

I would get them more money so they can continue to expand and increase their programs to allow them to touch more lives human and non-human.

To whom it may concern;
First of all, the work that this organization is unbelieveable. The
clinics that they conduct are providing great services to the needy.
Secondly, the schools that are provided to the children does more than
give them an education. They help with clothes and
supplies and
probably most importantly it provides food and security for the
children.These schools can be the catalyst that provides these
future Guatemala's a way out of their provery.

Finally, I can not say enough about this organization and the personal
touch that I have come to know. They make such a difference on
a daily basis to the people in Guatemala. I am so blessed to
have found this organization and to have conducted business
with such a dynamic and honest organization as Mayan Families.
Your consideration of Mayan Families is greatly appreciated.Thank
you for letting me express my TRUE feelings of the real work that
Mayan Famillies does.

Fondly,
Janet Smith

Mayan Families is exceptional.. our church started sponsoring a family, and that is when i found this little girl Brenda (1078).. I sponsored her and my life changed. Mayan families posts picutres of the children getting our packages or their new shoes or their school supplies.. I went down in December 2010 and the staff did everything humanly posibble to help my friend and I to visit the families we sponsor. Two translators everytime we went to a house, school party. This was amongst the Christmas parties at the schools, Peace Corp groups coming in and a spay clinic.The staff is tireless.. They sort clothes, find people to feed the elderly, feed families who lost a parent, find sponsors for everychild possible, and post those picutres to each persons page. They are the most amazing group I have ever seen or worked with. I can't wait to go back and to continue to keep up with things through the blog. They have such a great following that we all work hard to keep them going. We came home with much more than we gave because of the people being so gratful, that is the staff, the mayan people, the people you meet in the street. They help sponsor 1600 children.. and I don't know how many people are in elder care..It is just mind boggling how all this gets done. It is a really fantastic group.

My family currently sponsor a student through Mayan Families in Guatemala. Mayan Families helps operate 5 pre-schools, feeding programs and sponsorship opprotunities that allow children to attend school in Guatemala. The orginizers of Mayan Families live and work in Guatemala and provide weekly updates on what is happening in and around the various programs that they operate. In addition to their human work they also do animal advocacy which included a spay and neuter clinic. Guatemala is a very poor country and we believe that Mayan Families provides a variety of resources both to the young, old and animals that is desparately needed.

I sponsor a little girl in Guatemala through Mayan Families. It is a wonderful organization that helps so many people in this country. I receive pictures and letters from my sponsored student and get updates frequently. My church also sponsors an entire family in Guatemala, and two members of our congregation were able to travel to Guatemala and work with Mayan Families. Their website and blogs are informative and interesting to read. They do amazing things!

I have been blessed to be able to sponsor two girls through Mayan families so that they could attend school.
I am so thankful that through them I can help to educate these girls. They make it so easy and I know that every cent of my money is being used for something good.
They are great
about sending updates and pictures of the girls. I know that if and when I go to visit Guatemala I will be sure to visit Mayan families and hopefully see the families I am able to sponsor.
Mayan families is a really great organization that is making a real difference in the world.

Mayan Families provides much needed assistance to the indigenous people of Guatemala. Through their website, you can learn about the lives of the people that are receiving aid, and see pictures of what is being provided. I am sponsoring a preschool student and I find it very rewarding. I am grateful to Mayan Families for the opportunity to help.

I have two adopted children from Guatemala. They are the love and joy of my life. I feel a strong connection to the country through and because of my children. Mayan families has and continues to do so much for families and children in Guatemala. Through their school sponsership and feeding programs many children will have opportunites that they would never have otherwise had. Mayan Families deserves the support of us all.

I have numerous friends have direct interactions with Mayan Families and I have been amazed by the work that they do! As an adoptive parent to two Guatemalan daughters I have keen interest in groups doing things the "right" way and with honesty and integrity. This clearly is one of these organizations.
