Challenge

Since 2014 Impacto supported two visionary Mayan leaders, sisters Xunka and Yoli, to actualize their vision to create a community learning center in Zinacantan, Chiapas. The Learning Center now houses two programs: An after school programming and the Mujeres Sembrando La Vida (MSV) women's weaving collective. In four years, Xunka and Yoli's programs have already out-grown the space. There are simply more children and women who want to access these programs than can fit in the space!

Solution

Building a second floor to the learning center building, will effectively double the potential impact of these already very successful programs, helping get twice as many students into after school programs in Zinacantan.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help doubling the capacity of the Learning Center, to 50 children and 40 artisan women. These programs bring much needed support to the families of Zinacantan, and use two of the most effective ways to stop the cycle of poverty: education for children and economic empowerment of women.
