Mayan Families

Mayan Families is a small non-profit group operating in the Highlands of Guatemala. We live and work in the Lake Atitlan region. The work of Mayan Families is supported completely through donations, and are not affiliated with any political or religious groups.

Their beliefs are simple. They believe that impoverished and hard working people deserve a hand up. They believe that people helping people fosters a better world for everyone and that help should be based on a holistic and sensible look at all of the needs of small family units. Through support and commitment, many impoverished and deserving children and families will never be hungry or uncared for again.
