Kids in Guatemala deserve a chance, too.

If you live in the Oceanside region of Vancouver Island, do drop by the Aldea Maya booth at the St. Mark’s Fair in Qualicum on Saturday, July 25. You’ll be able to find out more about the work of this charity in the Lake Atitlan area in Guatemala, notably in giving children a chance to carrying on their education beyond elementary school.  You’ll also have a chance to buy some of the intricate beadwork done by students and their mothers.

TFranciscohis registered Canadian charity is worth your support.  See its website for background on what it has achieved so far, and what it hopes to achieve: http://www.aldeamaya.ca
You can also support the work of Aldea Maya through buying (for $35 or $50) the paintings done by some of the students I taught in April when volunteering in the Chukumuk school outside Santiago Atitlan in Guatemala.  See some of these great kids and their paintings (for sale) on the Guatemala page of this website, under Artwork.

best wishes,

Theo Dombrowski
