Lol-Ha/Hotel Akumal Caribe Employees Volunteer at HB

On February 25th, Hekab Be initiated a program with 5 employees of Lol-Ha Restaurant/Hotel Akumal Caribe who have volunteered to come work one-on-one with selected children, acting as a tutor, mentor and big brother/sister for these kids. We believe this program will allow the children of Akumal Pueblo, particularly those in greatest need, to see new possibilities for their future.

The purpose of the program is to match each responsible adult with a child in need, to help guide the children down a path towards success. In keeping with Hekab Be's mission to open new roads, this program provides the opportunity for the kids and their tutors to see the world through different eyes.

The tutors provide each child with personalized homework, reading and math assistance, as well as guidance in other areas. Undoubtedly their input will leave an indelible mark on these children’s lives.

Realizing that this is no easy task, we want to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to the tutors who have decided to join this project: Luis Gomez, Lupita Izquierdo, Javier May, Fatima Huerta and Marina QuiƱones. These exceptional adults’ willingness to take on this project demonstrates their generosity, and the profound value they place on the importance of helping others. Hekab Be commends you for providing this strong example of volunteerism to the Akumal Community!

We also would like to thank Laura Bush Wolfe for her dedication to this project and her assistance in helping to get the project off the ground.
