We hope you can join us to help to create and build waste management stations, improve community infrastructure and beautify a community park! This afternoon of interactive entertainment will benefit the community and provide the opportunity for local children and adults to see and learn about the benefits of sustainable practices as we implement the first step towards a community wide waste management systems. We will lead by example while creating lasting improvements in the community and teaching all about the importance of sustainable practices.

There will be various community improvement projects including site clean-up, building community workshop benches and tables, tree restoration and painting colorful murals.

Finally, we will settle in for the afternoon with local music, dancing, games and a lunch of local cuisine to be served by community leaders. To conclude the interactive and cultural excursion we will host an informative discussion of future and current projects with our partners before returning back to the resort for a wonderful evening of music.

In October 2016, Positive Legacy awarded Dreams for Mayan Children a $9,400 grant to support better educational outcomes and complete necessary renovations for the U Sasil Kaan School in Campamento Hidalgo, Mexico. Campamento Hidalgo a small indigenous village with a population of 200 people located in the Eastern Yucatan Peninsula. It is a true living Mayan community, where ancient traditions still exist and the Mayan language is commonly spoken, but has mostly been forgotten by the outside world.

In 2017 Positive Legacy again partnered with Dreams for Mayan Children, awarding a $10,500 grant to create a Learning Center in the community of Nuevo Durango. Their mission is to cultivate a variety of classes including basic computer skills, English language development, music education and traditional trade workshop. This project also includes supplying the Learning Center with needed materials and supplies to enable it to operate at maximum capacity for the community. Providing a resource for remote communities to utilize for expanded youth development and continued adult education is paramount for the survival of the Mayan culture.
