MAIA (previously known as Starfish) is driven by the question "How far can she go?" She is a promising Mayan indigenous young woman from a low-income family in a traditionally marginalized community who has the talent and desire to succeed but lacks access to opportunity.
We know that when a girl learns from highly trained educators, receives support for herself and her family from a local mentor, is nourished physically and emotionally, and has access to opportunities to grow and explore, she will be able to realize her infinite impact.
Join us by investing in Girl Pioneers! With our 100% model, all donations directly support MAIA students, educators, mentors, and families. Together, we can empower a generation of leaders who are breaking cycles of poverty in their families within one generation and launching initiatives for transformational change in their communities.
