10 Easy Ways to Help Mayatan Bilingual School
1. Spread the word.
Share our story via e-mail, Facebook, text message, IM, or whatever new-fangled service helps you connect to friends and family. And, of course, link to us from your blog or website.
2. Keep in touch.
Come to our campus in Copán Ruinas, Honduras. We'll greet you warmly and give you a tour, introduce you to students, and answer deep philosophical questions like: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?
Volunteer: 3 days? 3 weeks? 3 months? 3 years? Whether you want to teach, assist a classroom, lead a lesson, help us build, or lend a hand in any other way, we might just have a spot for you.
5. Buy merchandise.
T-shirts, get your t-shirts here. We've also got bags, sweatshirts, mugs, dog shirts, hoodies, ties, mouse pads, etc. ...
6. Donate materials.
Materials needed: books, computers, instruments, and much more. We can always use classroom supplies and educational materials like maps, DVDs, and the like. Many donations can be shipped through a courier service in Miami with ties to Mayatan, meaning that the sender is only responsible for shipping within the United States. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
7. Study abroad.
High school students from other countries can support scholarships at Mayatan and have the experience of a lifetime living with a host family and working with our students. We call it Learning Abroad at Mayatan.
8. Donate money.
1 Lempira, $5, €10, £100 ... Whatever you can give will go towards scholarships or a student of your choice when you donate now.
9. Sponsor a student.
Build a long-term relationship with a student who needs your help. Sponsorship is the heart of the Mayatan experience. It's the way that individuals from around the world can change the lives of Honduran children.
10. Sponsor a project.
We're building a future for kids, and that requires building. Projects include a library, an enclosed P.E/assembly space, new classrooms to accommodate our growth, and more. Costs and plans are in the works. To get on board now, contact email@example.com.
