ABOUT THE MAYAN CENTER FOR EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT
Completed in 2009, Adopt-a-Village's Mayan Center for Education and Development is a private residential education center located in a remote rainforest region of Guatemala. The center was established by AAV to provide a formal education to impoverished youth in the region and offers both a middle and high school. Extreme poverty prevents most girls in this area from education past primary school, resulting in early marriage and a lifetime of child bearing and domestic servitude.The new girls dormitory will create additional housing on the residential campus and expand educational opportunities for girls in the region who would otherwise go without formal training. The Mayan Center offers students a robust curriculum, small class sizes, individual attention, and interactive learning outside the classroom in the garden and nutrition centers, and the rainforest.
