FLAAR has new program to assist public education of Mayan families

We are now offering three new publications in electronic format. Any school, any family, everyone can download these at no cost.





These are the first editions; the second edition will be able to appear when we receive funding from location corporations or local foundations or local individuals. The second edition will have information for the teachers, etc.


We will enjoy doing ABCs in all the other Mayan languages, including for Mexico and Honduras. We would welcome funding from entities in Mexico and Honduras.


We would also hope to do these ABC in Xinca and Garifuna languages

Many social programs work at helping women who often did not have the same opportunity for school as males. In many of the villages we note that the women are not able to read.


So we are working on a developing a special program to create books for women aged 20’s, 30’s up to grandmothers.


Naturally these books will also be available to men of all ages.


The books we show today are for children; the ABC learning books for their parents and grandparents we will be able to finish when donations are available. To donate, write FrontDesk “at” FLAAR.org. FLAAR is tax exempt in USA so donations are tax deductible. In Guatemala FLAAR Mesoamerica is a non-profit under Guatemalan law.


The ABC learning program for adults will be focused on using healthy local Mayan plants of Guatemala as the words for each letter: Avocado, Bledo, Cacao (cocoa), etc.


A-Aguacate-for-ABC-EF 3732

A written with avocados (a tree native to Guatemala, not California).


Z-Zapote-for-ABC-EF 3732

Z is written with zapotes, a popular native fruit in Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras, etc.


For the version for parents and grandparents, each letter will be spelled with the actual fruits, literally.


Plus, we will help the parents learn about vitamins, minerals, and other aspects of fruits and vegetables which can improve their health.


We are also doing videos for teaching children to read the alphabet

Dr Nicholas has developed six storyboards as themes for animated videos to teach ABC’s in Spanish, Mayan, and English. Mariana Cabrera is doing the animation. Diana Zea has now joined this project. Karen Torres is doing the music and voice-over. All this is done in-house at FLAAR Mesoamerica office in Guatemala City.
