Vinicio, Maria Lida Foundation English Class Student
Every day I use the English I learned at the Maria Lida Foundation's classes to speak with tourists.
Katy, Maria Lida Foundation English Class Student and Small Business Owner
My reason for entering the English classes is to give better service to my clients and to communicate correctly, thus increasing my sales. My goal is to also speak with family and people who are visiting from abroad. I thank the Foundation because I am learning so much and God for His wisdom and understanding. Thank you and many blessings to Jorge and his team.
Elise, Practicum Project Team Lead
I've seen first hand the work the Maria Lida Foundation does to respect a community's traditions while also helping open the door to future opportunity. This important work changes lives every day!
