Werk

The volunteers will be participating in a traveling camp since we will be working in two communities: Yaxunah and Santa Marta. • Community Development: We will continue with the maintenance and cleaning activities of the community, cleaning the green areas of the community center, surroundings of the cenote and the archaeological zone. • Summer with children: We will bring a different summer to the children of the community, we will be giving playful and creative workshops, the final result will be presented at the closing of the camp. • Mayan House. We will continue our activities of maintenance and creation of our botanical garden and our ecological orchard. In addition, we will be learning traditional Mayan construction techniques, which will be used for the construction of a cabin. This space is intended to house our volunteers during their stay in Yaxunah.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Volunteers will be housed within the community community center, in basic conditions. It is necessary to bring a hammock, tent or sleeping bag.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The place where the workcamps takes place is full of cultural and natural attractions such as the Lol Ha (water flower) cenote, located within the community, the Yaxunah archaeological zone, located 1 km from the community, one of the 8 wonders of the world "Chichen Itzá" (does not include admission) and Las Coloradas (does not include admission) as well as the Cancunito beach and other archaeological sites.

Organisatie

This time, our camp will be in two Yaxunah and Santa María communities, two neighboring indigenous towns. Yaxunah is a Yucatecan Mayan community of 700 native Mayan-speaking inhabitants located in the municipality of Yaxcabá, Yucatán, 25 km southeast of Chichén Itzá and contains an important Mayan archaeological site. For years, Yaxunah has received groups of volunteers and tourists, so its hospitality and the good treatment of its inhabitants characterize it. It is a community that is committed to sustainable and community tourism, not only as a source of income for families, but also as a way to share the local culture with its visitors. We have no doubt that the authentic cochinita pibil, you will try it here! Santa Maria is located 11 km from Yaxunah. This town is literally located in the middle of the Mayan jungle. 70% of its inhabitants are Catholic and the rest Protestant, but their Mayan traditions continue to prevail today. generate their economy by working in the cornfield, beekeeping, raising cattle, or carving wood. The women are dedicated to sewing blouses or wipiles (traditional Mayan clothing). In this community, they only have one elementary school and they don't have a high school.
