Reviews for Mayan Families
Mayan Families is a fantastic organization and I just am always amazed at the huge amount of work they do! For just $30 a month I Sponsor a student and I am so thrilled at their progress! I also help in an advisory role. Go to Guatemala and volunteer, it will put life into prospective! This organization makes generational differences in the lives of the rural poor in Guatemala!
