Review for Mayan Families, Slatersville, RI, USA
I couldn't agree more with the post from GO_MAYANFAMILIES on 8/12/19. I've been involved with Mayan Families since 2010. Since then I've made 8 trips, including one last month when I had the opportunity to meet with Erin Mooney and the wonderful staff who have shepherded Mayan Families through the transition.
The transition itself did take some time, including time to catch up on past obligations, but I've never thought for a moment of walking away because there is no other organization better suited to continue the mission.
I'd like to encourage everyone to watch the attached video that was published a few days ago. In that video Erin provides her contact information for anyone who would like to request a copy of the report that outlines what happened, and most importantly explains what has been done and how the governance of Mayan Families today will ensure that nothing like what transpired will ever happen again.
For anyone still not sure what to believe, you don't need to take my word for it. Instead, get in touch with Erin and ask her about all of the other partner organizations who became affiliated with Mayan Families under the "old guard". You will find that virtually all of them chose to continue with the new Mayan Families, with new organizations approaching regularly saying they are so glad to see the new leadership and can't wait to partner.
For any donors who chose to wait this process out, I'd implore you to invest the time to get in touch with Erin and learn how Mayan Families is now in the best position ever to grow and continue to help the indigenous families around Lake Atitlan.
