Mission: The mission of Proyecto Itzaes is to provide educational resources for children and families in villages in Yucat√°n 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!

Cindy has done an outstanding job of developing reading programs as well as helping to create economic opportunities for the local Maya. She is highly focused and spends the organizations funds carefully and wisely, getting the most from her resources.

As someone who believes in the AMAZING work Proyecto Itzaes does to continue impacting the lives of many Maya children and their families, it is an honored for me to be able to be part of this GREAT organization. I spent two summers and a winter break in Yucatan collaborating with the Asesores, young adults who are now giving back to Proyecto Itzaes and to their own community. This organization does make a difference but it needs your help so that we continue impacting children's lives.
