The end of a wonderful year
2012 was a great year for Mayama. Our number of beneficiaries grew from 120 children in 2011 to 190 in 2012. This means also 15 more families in our Family Intervention Program, reaching to 95. We also had the first Volunteer Day in which 40 of our dads came on a Sunday to paint their children’s day Centre.
In this last trimester we included a new methodology in our Physical Development Area called AMAYS. This is, martial arts with special focus in self-control and will development toward goals. In parallel of the cognitive area, we started the Back to School Program, with 20 children that have never been to school. In Expression one of our children won third place in the “Engrane de Matracas” painting contest and in Social development our children experienced democracy through their vote in the first elections with the parties they formed (we had elections in Mexico that year).
As another accomplishment, our Education Team has given Lupita (and another 5 children) the opportunity to have an identity. She is a 12 year old girl that didn’t have a birth certificate; therefore she had no other rights, like education, health services, etcetera.
In terms of professionalism, we achieved the maximum level of transparency and resources management by the Mexican Philanthropy Centre (CEMEFI) and this is for us an opportunity to thank our donors for their confidence. We are now taking a path of constant evaluation, beginning with the children's improvements, and from the team as well, and also a commitment to share our results with both donors and beneficiaries (families).
You can be part of this beautiful mission!
