Outreach Project: Livingston
Since 2009 MEF has given scholarships in Livingston, Guatemala, to the Asociación de Amigos para el Desarrollo de Livingston “Marcos Sánchez Díaz”.
Their mission is to provide educational opportunities and cultural preservation activities for the Garinagu, the Q’eqchi’ and the Mopan, three indigenous minorities they see as neglected by the Guatemalan government and by other NGOs supporting Maya groups in the area.
A few years ago, after fellow student Layla passed away, the scholarship program was named in her honor, Programa de Becas “Layla Castro”.
Your donation of $200 a month supports a Maya student at university level.
