TIKAL, GUATEMALA:   Heart of the Mayan World! 

Happy Sunday!

Guatemala is, unquestionably, the heart of the Maya world. Within its territory, the Mayas' greatest cities flourished, centers of commerce and culture for the Meso-American region. The greatest of these, Tikal, attracts thousands of visitors every year, but there are hundreds of other archaeological sites that scientists have not even begun to study. Guatemala City itself is built on the ruins of an impressive Maya city known as Kaminaljuyu. ... See MoreSee Less

Education in Guatemala is unobtainable to many children.

ClassroomThe mission of  Programa Sueños is to make quality education accessible to all children. We believe that through education we can encourage children to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of those around them. It is our belief that when a child is given the tools to dream they can change the world.

    Jazmin, I just read your story in news day and I am so touched by your heart of compassion and willingness to give so much to help the children of San Antonio el angel. I am not Guatemalan but have a great love for the people and the country of Guatemala. I have been there seven times since 2007 and will be there again on February 4th. I first went there as a Spanish student and made friends that I now look forward to visiting each year. I mainly stay in Antigua but if I have an opportunity I’d like to get to know more of the country. It is a beautiful place with beautiful people. Thank you for all you are doing. I live in Nassau county which is far from matti tuck but If there is anything I can do to help your programa sueños besides donating (which I just did) please let me know what I can do.
    Thank you again!
    Lorena

    Dear Jazmin,

    I also read the newsday article today. I am married to a Chapina. I have visited Guatemala many times in the last 22 years.
    It fills my heart with happiness and pride to see what you are doing. I am very interested in finding a way to contribute besides money (which I will do).
    You are a special person.

    Michael
