Challenge

Tzununa is a small village of 3000 residents primarily of indigenous Maya people who speak Kaqchikel, with high rates of poverty and illiteracy. The children and youth are the way forward to build a healthy community where all citizens have the opportunity to succeed in life. This project will give educational opportunities to many children, young people and adults so they can find a way of living.

Solution

The Community Center is the hub of educational, cultural, economic and social empowerment for the citizens of Tzununa. This educational, cultural, economic and social hub with the Community Center at its heart is envisioned to be a major economic development driver for improving the financial, cultural and social well-being of all the citizens of Tzununa. When families struggle less to survive there will be time and energy for all the things that make life beautiful and worth living.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 300 children by improving reading abilities and art opportunities, 50 young people with have training in jobs (cooking, iron work and carpentry) and 50 women to rise out of poverty with a job that will improve life of the families in Tzununa.
