One of the largest groups of modern Maya can be found in Mexico's Yucatán State and the neighboring states of Campeche, Quintana Roo and in Belize. Our global outreach is in the state of Quintana Roo. These peoples we will be serving commonly identify themselves as "Maya". They speak the language simply called "Maya". Among Maya speakers, Spanish is commonly spoken as a second or first language.
The villages we serve are populated with less than 500 persons – some much smaller. Their access to medical care is difficult and sporadic.
We partner with an organization, RivieraMayaSostenible whose mission is to promote sustainable life for the Maya. We will be working in villages that you may not even find on a map. It will be an experience you will never forget.
