Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education

Mission: 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.

Results: Our programs are described in detail on our webpage and Facebook page. On our PI page http://wp.proyectoitzaesusa.org/category/news/ you can read our newsletters that describe in detail our programs and successes!

I love everything about Proyecto Itzaes, from its mission to the students and communities it serves. I have had the privilege of experiencing PI in action, and it is a truly life-changing, sustainable organization. I cannot say enough good things about PI, the people who work both for and with PI, and the students who both give and receive classes at PI centers around the Yucatan. PI transforms lives and gives young students the strength, as well as the resources, to stay in school and become young professionals. I have gotten to know many of these PI students (and graduates) and they are the future leaders of Mexico and the Yucatan.

Recomiendo a todos mis amigos, educadores y familiares de acercarse y colaborar con este gran proyecto educativo que expande el conocimientos de culturas de las que conocemos poco y ayudamos a su desarrollo. Músicos y compositores pueden escuchar y aprender temas indígenas tocados con instrumentos de los que tal vez conocen muy poco. Los maestros de este proyecto enseñan a los niños las canciones de sus ancestros. Enseñan también sobre las hierbas curativas, el cuidado de la tierra para hacerla producir, en fin, que en el proceso de ayudarlos, aprendemos todos. No se pierdan este proyecto ITZAES. Vale la pena. Con mi cariño, Suni Paz (educadora, cantante y compositora)
