SEPA has been proudly supporting this school since its inception 11 years ago.  

Besides basic education, the school is noted for promoting organic farming, democratic principles, gender equality, and pride in Mayan accomplishments.  Rigoberto will discuss the challenges and rewards of educating young people in rural Mayan communities.
