San Simon, Yucatán Children Love New Notebooks
Founder Jane Custer's trip to the village of San Simon, about 15kms south of the Mayan archaeological site of Uxmal, on Feb 12, 2013, produced some happy faces.
San Simon is the home of a number staff members of Hacienda Uxmal and the Lodge at Uxmal both Mayaland resorts. Enrique Valdes, Director of Sustainable Tourism for Mayaland, facilitated our visit so we could donate much needed notebooks, markers and colored pencils to primary school children. About 50 children, ranging from age 3 to 9, received the school materials.
If you are traveling to Cancun or Merida and would like to donate, please contact Enrique Valdes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
