Proyecto Iztaes is a wonderful organization, led by Cindy Wilber. They have really made a difference in several villages in Yucatan, by promoting education, reading, computer skills, culture preservation, and healthy food habits. I have known Cindy most my life, and consider her a role model. Her drive, generosity, high energy, and commitment are unparalleled, and Proyecto Itzaes is a product of all these virtues in action, seeking to improve the quality of life of Mayan children and their families. I sincerely wish Proyecto Itzaes continued success and that many more people contribute to its much needed cause.

Proyecto Itzaes deserves to be rated in the top echelons of service agencies. Their respect for the Mayan culture and family based learning is unparalleled. While I have no personal experience with the agency I have heard of their good work.

Projecto Itzaes is an amazing organization that is performing critical work to empower the Mayan community in Yucatan, Mexico. Providing both educational and health resources, the staff of PI works directly with the community to listen and comprehend the needs of a people that live on less than $1 a day. Respecting their cultural heritage, PI also provides the educational materials for the Mayan community to connect with the environment. PI has also coordinated trips so that the young children can visit the famous Mayan ruins in Yucatan and have the opportunity to get a glimpse into the history of their culture, which they otherwise would not be able to do given the high price of tourism. Thanks to PI, many of the families and young children are learning the value of eating healthy rather than spending the little money they make on cheap processed foods and drinks that have had a negative impact in the health of their community. Furthermore, with the resources and help of PI, some of the young people have gotten themselves into college and are using their education to help back home! It’s truly admiring the work that founder, Cindy Wilber, and Simon Clopton have done in this humble community. Donations to PI are more than just donations, they are an investment in the human capital of this indigenous community that has been undermined by society and the Mexican government for so long. PI is the organization to trust and believe in when it comes to using all the funding for the Mayan people it serves.

I have been watching this organization from afar and am impressed by its mission and dedication of its volunteers. By providing books and education, they stand to have a much greater impact than other similar projects providing direct services. I think this organization deserves a closer look and would love to work with them in the future.

Cindy is an amazing and hardworking passionate individual. She pours so much of herself into Proyecto Itzaes and gets RESULTS. Not only does she raise money for the students, but she is personally involved in their community. She spends time in the Yucatan and loves every minute. The students receive some funding from Proyecto that truly changes their educational experience, often the funding is the factor that allows some to continue attending school.

This nonprofit supports the simple, yet essential idea that everyone has the right to an education. By getting bilingual books to children, you can feed their natural curiosity and imagination, while developing important grammar and language skills. The creators of this organization care deeply on a personal level about each person who benefits from their fundraising and programming efforts. It's also nice to know that ALL of the money you give goes straight to people in need, and not to pay a salary for some nonprofit corporation. It is a personal, effective approach to empowering people while preserving local culture.

I first met Cindy two years ago while visiting two of P.I's sites. I met board members, volunteers and students. What most impressed me was the empowerment that P.I created within the community both academically and through a social justice perspective. This is one of the most impressive non-profits.
