Yucatan Project: Day 6, San Antonio Sodzil

Jan 9th: Today my team and I decided to head to San Antonio Sodzil, an ethnically Mayan village an hour away from my unit’s campsite. The center in this village is for orphan children and kids whose families are unable to support any educational opportunities they may have. The journey through the site included viewing the cafeteria, their radio station, the future pool area and the living spaces for both boys and girls. I was honestly moved by how these children would also want to spend their lives as educators and doctors. I was upset by their troubles as young kids growing up in a less than favorable environment. I know that working on this project can give some chance in helping them achieve not only their dreams but directly helping their community grow.
