: The Maya Leaders Alliance (MLA) is a coalition of Maya organizations based in Southern Belize. It has played a key role in the efforts to defend Maya lands, culminating in recent legal victories. The MLA also promotes sustainable development and the well-being of Maya communities through social, economic and cultural development. On June 28th 2010 the Maya achieved a tremendous victory when the Supreme Court decided to uphold Maya land rights. To learn more about the most recent victory please visit our website
: The MLA recently obtained donated office space, but has yet to install an internet connection. Given the poor phone lines and frequent blackouts in Southern Belize, having a satellite connection is critical to enabling the continued protection of Maya lands.
: We hope to support the Maya Leaders Alliance by providing them with basic communications tools for the coming year. The installation costs are minimal, and internet fees are about $80/month. Your donation to this cause, while it may seem modest, will help the MLA face these challenges. Please join us!
- $20 equals a week internet connection
- $80 equals a month internet connection
- $150 covers installation
- $1,000 equals a full year of internet access
