Update from Mayanza

Students play different types of games like chess.

Happy Holidays!  Its time for an update for Mayanza and we wanted to share our most recent work in Santiago.  Students are traditionally on vacation from school from October to January and this year we wanted to give students that we work with a little extra enrichment during their time off.

Our Vacation Program included 15 children, from the ages of 3 - 12, from vulnerable families of the community of Tzanchaj.  The students started their time at camp by practicing healthy behaviors of handwashing and toothbrushing.  Then, they had lessons focused around health topics, art, math, music and movement and reading stories.  They had time for free play and finished up their time with a healthy snack.

Over the past year, school has primarily been online and we have worked to provide health education on an individual level in student homes, to small groups in schools and with informational packets sent to the students homes.  Just this week, we were very excited to learn that children will return to in-person school in January!  We are looking forward to returning in February to provide a health clinic in the schools.

Thank you for all of your support during these difficult times!  We look forward to sharing our ongoing work with you in 2022!
