WHAT OUR COMMUNITIES SAY

If I hadn’t had a sponsorship through Mayan Families, it would have been a lot more difficult to attend college.  Stability – that’s what the sponsorship gives you. You can take off that load of constantly thinking, ‘How am I going to pay for the next month?’ And that is a lot of help.

 

Perla Alejandrina

Sponsored University Student

Even though I already have two children, I really had very little knowledge of sexual health topics previously. I feel more informed now, with a stronger and more open mentality.

 

Maribel

Women’s Health Initiative Graduate

I want to share what I ’ve learned with members of my community, so that they can learn a new skill too.
