WHAT WE DO

The Maya Childcare Trust in the UK and Maya Childcare Inc. in the USA together fund and support the Acorn Childcare Center in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. The Center provides a safe and caring educational environment for Guatemalan children living in poverty, at risk of suffering from neglect.

It ensures that children’s basic needs are met and encourages active learning during the formative preschool years, ages 2-6. This is a crucial stage of development and the support they receive at the Center has a positive impact throughout their lives.
