Most of the women who work with Mayan Hands have had no more than a third grade education, and many none whatsoever. They tend to be illiterate, and many do not speak Spanish, but speak native K’iche’, Kaqchikel, Tz’utujil, or Achí. But one of the most important things that working with Mayan Hands does for them is make it possible for them to send their children to school, including their daughters. With encouragement, an annual gift of school supplies, and scholarships, Mayan Hands helps with what we see, and what the women see, as a very important change for the next generation.
