On behalf of all of the children, staff and parents of the Maya Childcare Project, we want to thank you for your generosity in supporting Maya Childcare, Inc. We hope that you enjoy seeing the impact you are having and reading the stories of the children you are helping!
The children have been busy over the last several months. They celebrated Guatemalan Independence Day with a presentation and party with their families. The children prepared a dance, sang songs and dressed in traditional clothing. Parents and children also shared with each other thoughts about how they can make their community better.
One of the children that we met when we visited earlier this year was Antoni Alexander. Antoni is a 2-year-old boy who lives with his mom and maternal grandmother. His mom works in a Tortilla Shop and earns her living by whatever she makes day to day. Before coming to the Center, Antoni tried to keep out of the way at work with his mom. The caring attention of adults, the friendship of other children, nutritious meals, and inspiring opportunities to learn through play have allowed him to grow and develop beautifully.
Antoni shares with others, eats well, and enjoys learning with the other children. He is friendly and loves everything about being at the Center. His mom tells us that she now has a much more friendly child, who is able to adapt to many situations.
Thank you again for your support that provides these children with a safe environment in which to learn, grow, share nutritious food and play together.
With all of love and continued thanks,
Barrie, Rachael, Zoe
