I am a member of several listservs whose members share a common concern for Guatemala. On these listservs I have read about the amazing work of Mayan Families through firsthand testimonials of volunteers and other contributors as well as those who have sought and received help for loved ones in Guatemala. I have only heard high praise about Mayan Families and have never heard a bad word.

Review from Guidestar

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.

We have been living in the community where Mayan family is based for many years and know the founders and their family personally. What I have seen them do over the years cannot properly be described in words: Their dedication, selflessness and competence always blows my mind. Apart from having great ideas and knowing where help is needed most, they follow through with every great project they plan, are well organized and very well presented on the internet and locally. They follow up on projects so that you can see where the money or physical help you provided went. I have recommended Mayan Families to many friends and family memebers as an organization that can be fully trusted, knowing that the money you give really goes where it is supposed to. I am honestly impressed by Mayan Families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization by looking around me and seeing the difference they make, and by participating in some projects with my Kindergarten class.

I would provide them with more staff (or money to hire staff) to give them a little break, I know their schedule is often really tight, and often they work till they drop.

I've been hearing about the work of Mayan Families from my niece, who is a volunteer there this month. I'm so impressed by the variety of efforts they make on behalf of the sick, the hungry, the aged, the children and the homeless in their community. A wide variety of services helping destitute people. Thank you, Mayan Families.
