FundaMaya (Fundación Familia Maya) was born from the vision of a group of indigenous Guatemalan, Australian, and American friends wanting to make a difference for those most in need. Now, more than 14 years later, we have an even greater desire to help the Guatemalan communities we call home.
From the beginning it was important to everyone involved that FundaMaya be a Guatemalan organization.
While we partner with people from other countries and benefit from the energy, skill, and knowledge of two of our founders, Sharon and Dwight, our board is now all Guatemalan and predominantly indigenous.
Our board members are from the Lake Atitlan area, and they truly understand the culture, and respect the way of life.
