Centro Maya Project

Centro Maya Project is located in San Juan La Laguna Sololá, Guatemala. It is a social justice effort providing humanitarian, educational, and medical assistance to indigenous Mayan families whose daily struggle with extreme poverty is evidenced by malnutrition and illness. Centro Maya Project focuses primarily on helping poor families with disabled children, single mothers with children and emergency medical care. The Project is based on respectful relationships developed between Project volunteers and the Mayan people living on the shores of Lake Atitlán. This is possible because Benedicto Ixtamer Perez and his wife Maria Cholotio Hernandez generously volunteer their time to facilitate all aspects of the Project.

The Project supports programs in the following areas:
