PLEASE HELP TO FUND MOVIDA’S “SOCIAL BUS PROJECT”

We are currently focusing on collecting funds towards our Social Bus Project. In response to the lack of access to a communal and educational space dedicated to young people, we want to bring it to them!

To reach our goal, we need to buy a school bus and transform it into a mobile social center. This will enable us to provide a suitable place for young people, to carry out our activities and to reach more Mayan communities.

What the bus will offer :

  • Outreach to more Mayan communities
  • Mobile library & material storage
  • Space for activities and workshops
  • Computer access
  • Meeting place for young people
  • A safe and dynamic environment for the participants
 We are looking to buy a bus (old school bus type) and transform it inside.
