Written by Cafe Campesino on Oct 1, 2005 in Fair Trade Friends, NEWSLETTER |

Maya Tech Learning Centers, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 which seeks to advance educational and technological opportunities for underdeveloped Mayan communities in Guatemala through comprehensive, culturally appropriate computer access, training and development with internet and email capabilities; sponsorship and facilitation of community and youth-focused educational programming; and promotion of projects honoring Mayan heritage. In 2004, Maya Tech opened its first computer center in Nahualá, a growing Quiché Mayan town in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Born and raised in Nahualá, the organization’s founder, Camilo Macario, has developed a plan to bridge the digital divide between first and third world communities using current technology.
