Mayan Families
May 20, 2010

This is my third trip down to Guatemala working with Mayan Families. I have seen firsthand the huge amount of work they accomplish, especially with Indigenous Women's issues. I am amazed at how much work they do and how much good they accomplish. Mayan Families touches so many lives. They are multi faceted in their approach working on Environmental issues like the fuel efficient stove project and Animal Welfare issues with the Hope for the Animals project as well as Micro Loans for Women.

Seperate the house that Sharon and Dwight live in and work in from Mayan Families. Mayan Families needs a larger location.
