And in October 2016, Positive Legacy awarded Dreams for Mayan Children a $9,400 grant to support better educational outcomes and complete necessary renovations for the U Sasil Kaan School in Campamento Hidalgo, Mexico. Campamento Hidalgo a small indigenous village with a population of 200 people located in the Eastern Yucatan Peninsula. It is a true living Mayan community, where ancient traditions still exist and the Mayan language is commonly spoken, but has mostly been forgotten by the outside world.
In partnership with Positive Legacy, Dreams for Mayan Children’s Project Caring will address the community driven goals of building a block wall that will enclose the school, allowing the children to play safely and prevent vandalism, improve the school’s dining structure so they will have a clean & sanitary environment, as well as restore the basketball court and soccer goal posts. With the support of their families and teachers, we will create an appropriate space for their development so they have a better educational experience!
Dreams for Mayan Children is a small but dedicated group of people with a strong belief in giving the children the chance of a better future. They work to provide Mayan children and teachers with learning materials, build playgrounds and community infrastructure, provide volunteer opportunities and keep the Mayan language and culture alive in the Yucatan Peninsula where rural communities have very little or no support at all.
