Hola and Feliz Navidad from Mayan Families Canada!

We hope that everyone is looking forward to a wonderful holiday season. As Christmas approaches, we have several things we’d like to bring to your attention.

We have two students who are in need of school sponsorship


Limni is 16 years old and presently in grade 8. During our last visit, she asked that we pass along how sincerely thankful she is for the support she’s been given. Although her family works very hard, there is little money to cover Limni’s school tuition and basic school needs. Her favourite subject is Math and she hopes to become a teacher.


Walter is 10 and in grade 1. He is a relatively newly sponsored student and is very enthusiastic about being able to attend school. For some time, Walter’s father has had difficulties obtaining work and the family is struggling to make ends meet. Providing for his school tuition is simply impossible for them.

School sponsorship for these students costs $480 CDN per student and will completely change their lives and opportunities. If you would like to learn more please send us an e-mail.

Gifts of Hope

Our Gifts of Hope are a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas giving. Choose one of the following gifts for one of our sponsored students. We’ll send you a beautiful Gift Card, or you can have it mailed directly to the person you are giving on behalf of.
