Education Heals

Dear Supporter,

This project has been established to aid the local schools which are currently over populated, under-staffed and under-resourced. It aims to improve facilities and resources, supply assistant teachers, and text books for every student.

With the over flow of immigrants, due to the booming tourist industry, the public schools have become over populated, under staffed and under resourced. Currently students attend school for 3 hrs a day, with teachers often having to group grades together.

With support, the project will include:

  • Textbooks for every student
  • Assistant Biligual teachers 
  • Assistance with labor and materials for the construction of basic classroom facilities
  • Assistance with infrastructure and grounds maintance 
  • Adult evening language classes
  • Extra curricular and after shcool activities
  • Assistance in developing a small scale IT center with computers, a printer and photocopier
  • Assistance in developing a small scale library.

Education fights crimes, violence and unites us all.

Many thanks for your continuing support

The Operation

Dear Supporter,

You went to school, right? Obviously you did, you can read this sentence. And you also have a sufficient level of computer literacy to find your way to this page.

At the time, you didn’t think twice about going to school 5 days a week. But unfortunately, the same cannot be said for 57,000,000 children across the world, who go without a basic primary and further secondary education. By default, these children forego the opportunity to make something of themselves.

The ability to read and write should not be taken for granted. This is your opportunity to change the lives of hundreds of children. 

This initiative is truly an international effort, with anyone, skilled or unskilled, over the age of 18 being welcome to join the staff, volunteers, individuals, school groups and corporates from across the globe as we work together to contribute towards the realisation of the United Nations Millennium Development Goal #2 – to achieve universal primary education by 2015.

We need as much help and as many hands as possible. If you do have a particular skill that you feel could be useful to the project, let us know! Please see the link below to apply.

All the best

Recent sightings in Pez Maya

Dear Supporter,

We’ve had some interesting sightings out on the reef this past month,  including a sighting of a large Loggerhead turtle, who when discovered came trundling out of its hidey hole to plod away in a hilariously cumbersome manner.  Just today, a 2.5m crocodile was spotted at the bridge to the entrance of the lagoon behind the GVI camp at Pez Maya. The GVI Mexico team have also seen gray nurse sharks and hawksbill turtles along with many lionfish.

The invasion of lionfish, native to the Indo-Pacific, into the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea is not only one of the most rapid in marine history but also having extremely detrimental effects to local species and ecosystems. While in their native habitat, lionfish breed seasonally, invasive lionfish in the Atlantic have been documented breeding all-year round. Lionfish are also generalist carnivores that can consume over 70 species of fish, up to half their own body length, including commercially, recreationally, and ecologically important species6. On heavily invaded sites, lionfish consume native fish at unsustainable rates. As such, food competition can also lead to depleting food sources for native carnivores. The data collected on this project is very useful for future planning of local control efforts and will hopefully be used to co-ordinate our future lionfish control efforts which, if implemented well, can control local populations and even generate income for local communities.

Thank you for continuing to support this project.

All the best
