Become a Head Start Hero for Vulnerable Preschoolers

XELA AID’S PRESCHOOL GIVES VULNERABLE CHILDREN A SORELY NEEDED HEAD START – While just 3 years old, Priscila was left to care for her younger brother Diego and her sister Maribel. A neighbor alerted Xela AID staff, who made room for them at our preschool. There, they now receive classroom instruction, two hot meals each day and medical care. Become a Head Start Hero and help more children like Priscila, Diego and Maribel live and thrive!


Six out of every 10 rural Mayan children still go hungry, and only 1 in 10 will ever graduate from the 6th grade! The good news is that children in Xela AID education programs consistently beat the odds, with more than 80% graduating from high school!

Our San Martín Tot’s Preschool is approved for only 30 students and is bursting at the seams. To meet the need, we MUST expand. Donate as little as $10 a month to help Xela AID build a new preschool and give more children like Priscila the head start on their education they need to prosper in school and break the cycle of poverty!

Our new planned preschool will both triple our capacity to serve to 90 students, and introduce the renowned Montessori method. We have additionally been asked by the local government to train Montessori teachers, which will substantially increase the quality of education across the entire region we serve.

Thank you for considering a contribution of as little as $10 per month (or another amount you choose) to help ensure that impoverished children like Priscila, Diego and Maribel get the head start they need to beat the odds and graduate high school so that they may live healthier, happier lives and become productive and self reliant.
