The mission of Proyecto Itzaes is to provide educational resources for children and families in villages in Yucatán where traditional farming and fishing can no longer support families. We believe that the fundamental tools of literacy should be available to all. Our goal is to build sustainable community service programs that promote family-centered learning and respect Maya cultural heritage. Education will create new opportunities for children to fully realize their gifts in a changing world.



Proyecto Itzaes is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. In recent years people like you have helped to open five new PI libraries, send 15 first-generation students to the University, brought school supplies to six villages, taught hundreds of children computer skills and changed lives in Yucatán.
