Winds of Change:
Mayan Adventure

November 4 - 11th, 2018

# Volunteers: 15
Ages 13 - 72

Location of Project: TEABO, Yucatan, Mexico

In light of continued challenges in Nicaragua we shifted our focus of our last Winds of Change service trip to the Yucatan area of Mexico. The NGO partner we work with in Nicaragua, Seeds of Learning (SOL), identified a project well suited to our trip - the refurbishment and repair of a small school in the Mayan community of Chiken that was in need of assistance. We will also enjoyed time in Merida, the capital of the region, and immersing ourselves in Mayan culture.

Fundraising:

Our current fundraising project is Completing a School & Library in Nicaragua

A school and a library in Nicaragua need your help...

Political unrest in Nicaragua has caused many charities and other Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to stop hosting service trips to the country. Revenue from these trips is the main source of funding for many small-scale development projects in Nicaragua so the cancellation of trips puts many projects in difficult financial position. This means that badly needed schools and library facilities are left unfinished leaving kids in crowded, often leaky classrooms. Not only do these projects provide badly needed infrastructure they bring communities together in a constructive and meaningful way - at a time when communities are suffering tension and hardship from the ongoing  unrest. 

Our goal is to raise $11,810. We’re more than half way there. Click here to donate.
