A new reality against COVID-19, during this period the one-year authorization was obtained for the construction of the Centre; however it has been postponed due to the health contingency, so efforts have been channelled in support of families with humanitarian aid and in the construction of peace and resilience, as well as adapting the distance educational program incorporating the use of information and communication technologies in its processes for the distribution of pantries , health kits, as well as kits with educational material for the 148 families we work with.

That is why we are joining efforts at a distance to care for girls, children and their families and to realize Mayama's mission of developing her assertive decision-making skills and substantive improvement in her quality of life and dealing with situations like the one we live in.

Construction of the Center will be restarted as soon as we have government authorization.

Today more than ever the importance of continuing the goal of having the New Day Center.

To all our donors;

We are very pleased to inform you that during this trimester (January–March) we have reinforced our Fundraising campaign to be able to start our construction work and begin our new learning center. This opportunity will transform the lives of twice our actual size with 500 children every 3 years. 

So with lots of joy this past 26th February, children, donors, board members, families and Mayama´s staff made a very unique and special celebration to thank the nature for our new land, to thank life for this new path and to thank our donors for believing in our transformational work.  We danced together, chanted together, even planted a tree together. 

Officially our New Learning center construction work has begun, thanks to you!!!  We hope to see the opening in December of this year. Please do come and celebrate with us. We will keep you informed how the construction advances. THANK YOU!!!

Still need funding to finish the work. Will keep you posted.

After 4 years in the Mayama Skills Development Model, 82 children conclude their process, increasing their abilities and maturation age; that is to say, that on average the children graduate between 9 and 13 years of chronological age, they managed to level their age at that age. This means that they improved their self-esteem and managed to control their impulses, in addition to introjecting a culture of peace and a broader vision to choose, freely and assertively, a life project in terms of health (addiction prevention), education (staying in school), reproductive life (sexuality according to its maturation stage) and access to decent work; under a Human Rights perspective.

After graduating from Mayama; It is expected that the practice of their skills will take them from the individual to the interpersonal and the community. To demonstrate their skills (reflect, communicate ideas, think), team projects were implemented to intervene in their communities: 1) Mural for raising awareness about domestic violence, 2) Fukuoka Bombs workshop for the sowing of vegetable gardens, 3) Workshop the plate of good food to raise awareness about obesity and personal health care; taught in schools, 4) Reforesting my community taught in some colonies whose logistics consisted of truck stops and houses, 5) Mexican Games Olympics, in the colony and here were Mexican game competitions such as roosters, among others and 6) construction of giant PET container made of inosidable steel. In this last phase the methodology of project learning (learning by doing), children put into practice their thinking skills through the reflection of a problem in their colonies: raise a problem, inspire, investigate, solve, and prototype creation to solve the problem (product, video, machine, documentary) so that children become change agents.

As for families, they increased their stronger parental skills to maintain a more conducive development scenario for the child that promotes the restoration of their rights, the rights of their children, and a community life with more support networks in the colonies that it promotes. break cycles of marginalization and violence.

¿Have you seen them?

We keep joining efforts to reach the goal of building a new learning center for outcasted children in Jalisco, Mexico. This time the youngest have been actively participating through our Digital Youth Embassador campaing, which uses social media as one of the main communication channels.

Since June we started inviting the youth of thos companies who had previously participad with us in volunteering activities, and right now we are super excited there’s a team of 10 DYE (Digital Youth Embassadors) commited with the children’s rights.

¿What do the DYE do? 

Youth embassadors’ mission is to share the cause with their Friends and family, use the social media to generate social impact, invite others with creativity and empathy, but mainly what they do is to believe in education as a tool to transform their surround, in the accomplishment of human rights as a way to procure the development of the person, and in the construction of the peace through the access of development opportunities.

So if you see one do not doubt on supporting them.  

We are getting closer and closer to our goal thanks to your donnation. Let’s keep rocking!

First of all thanks for being part of this amazing project, we deeply believe that team work makes possible achieve any goal, and we’re glad you’re active part of this one trough your donation.

During this three months we’ve been having executive breakfast in which we invited key people to join us as embassadors of our campaign in order to spread the word and help us to share this project with the accurate people, interested in building a better future for children specially those who lack access to develpment opportunities. All this with the purpose of generating a more powerful fundraising campaing in our town.

The first breakfast was focus on inspiring and directly inviting the people to become embassadors of our organization. With a high commitment and responsibility most of them accpeted and started inviting other people.

The second executive breakfast aimed to provide some tools to comunicate effectively  the campaign. This time one of the graduated children of our program shared with them his testimony of what he lived during it and how did it change his life, it was definetly a very emotional and inspiring moment.

The third and the last one, we had in total 22 embassadors, in this breakfast they started defining some fundraising strategies and the team members that will be collaborating with them among this next months to have a succesful fundraising campaign.

This is an important step for our organization, we feel excited because we know that there’s nothing imposible for those who seek the good in the world. Thank so much again for being part of this trascendent moment in the life of Mayama.
