Telchac Education helps finance the education of poor but promising students in Telchac Puerto. Schools are free in Mexico, but each student must provide all of their own supplies and uniforms. Due to the cost of these items and other things students must supply, many families can't afford to send their children past 6th grade.
Financing for these students is done through sponsorship.
Each child sponsored receives a backpack filled with school supplies, uniforms, shoes, and at Christmas, a gift.
In return the students must keep a high GPA. Each student writes a thank you letter enclosing a photo to their sponsor. 
Telcha Education also runs a summer school program for children who are having trouble passing their grade at school. The program, YO PUEDO LEER (I can read), helps children with reading and life skills, such as nutrition and health. There are art classes and swimming too.
Yo Puedo Leer is funded two different ways. The first is via a fund from people who want to donate to Telchac Education, but don't want to commit to a student every year. The second is via fundraisers. Every year the Telchac Education Full Moon Jazz Festival is held in February. Maya Solar donates the profits from their regatta to Telchac Education. 
If you would like to sponsor a student, donate to the general fund, or find out more about this wonderful program, please contact
