About Us

Mission & History


Mayan Hope is a non-profit organization that seeks to support underprivileged Guatemalans, and to provide them with brighter futures. The special education school provides free education to children and young adults with a variety of special needs ranging from Downs Syndrome and other cognitive delays, to deafness and physical handicaps.

Meet the Team


The school currently employs 5 full-time teachers and 1 part-time physical therapist who work tirelessly to educate the students, and teach them life skills that allow them to be self-sufficient. Mayan Hope's Board aims to support the special education school as best it can, and is currently fundraising to build a new school.

How to Help


Mayan Hope's Board supports the school, and is working towards constructing a new building for the children that would better suit their needs than the space currently being rented. We have begun fundraising, and are hoping to start construction later this year. Learn more about how you can help us achieve our goal!
