Helping these indigenous - Mayan women to be educated is such an effective way to empower the whole community. It also allows and encourages them to remain in their own home country to study and work and make a difference. Families who might believe that sending their daughters to the US will give them a better life or a way to support the people back home have a reason to support the idea of them getting an education instead. It's such a win - win
