International day of the mother tongue.

Today holds special significance as it is the International Day of the Mother Tongue. At Fundamaya, we recognize the importance of creating an environment where everyone feels comfortable expressing themselves in their native language. In Panajachel, the predominant mother tongue is Kakchiquel, although we also have individuals who speak Quiche and Tzutjil.

In our commitment to preserving linguistic diversity, we believe it is crucial that our Fundamaya preschools actively promote the learning of children's mother tongues alongside Spanish. By doing so, we not only honor cultural heritage but also empower the younger generation to embrace and celebrate the richness of their linguistic roots.

In fostering an inclusive and nurturing atmosphere, we aim to contribute to the preservation and appreciation of diverse languages, recognizing their integral role in shaping identities and fostering a sense of belonging. Happy International Day of the Mother Tongue!
