PACK FOR A PURPOSE
PTP Mundo Maya goes clearly for responsible tourism.
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families. Please click here to see what supplies are needed for our project.
Specifically, we collaborate with the Start with a Smile project, which provides support to the primary school “Las Delicias”, located in the town of Taxisco, department of Santa Rosa, 90 kilometres away from Guatemala City. The population are mostly peasants with scarce resources, with subsistence crops of bean and corn. In “Las Delicias” school there are 300 boys and girls, aged from 6 to 16 years. Their desire to learn is huge, but their resources are meagre. Many things would be useful for them.
Any help would be beneficial, appreciated and used by these boys and girls.
Many items can be purchased locally. Currently, the children are in urgent need of DESKS as the ones they are currently using are in bad condition. The children also need GUMBOOTS as many children have to cross rivers and walk long distances in the mud to get to school. If you are interested in purchasing desks or gumboots locally, please contact with PTP Mundo Maya guides and pilots, or write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you make the appropriate arrangements.
