Updates from the Healthy Mothers Program

As we approach the end of the year, we are also approaching the end of the Healthy Mothers program for 2022.  We are proud of the accomplishments of these women over the past year.

  • 20 women completed the program - 10 from the community of Tzanchaj and 10 from Panul.
  • Weekly education sessions with our health educators on a variety of health topics such as stress management, reproductive health, hygiene, nutrition, exercise and disease prevention.  We also had guest speakers who are experts from the community including a psychologist, sexual health educator, expert on local plants for medicinal use and a chef.
  • Weekly group exercise sessions with our exercise trainers.
  • Biannual health screenings from the Mayanza team, including screening for diabetes, anemia and monitoring body indices.
  • Enrichment for the children of the mothers in the program: Each week, while the mothers learn and exercise, their children receive enrichment activities including math, reading, art, music and creative play from a certified teacher.  This allows the mothers to focus on themselves and the children to benefit from this time with a teacher.

We look forward to celebrating their accomplishments with a ceremony and awarding their certificate of completion when the Mayanza leadership team returns in March.

If you would like to help us continue this important work, please make a donation today. As the holidays approach, please visit our shop to purchase a unique, handcrafted gift that helps to support the women of our programs.
