Café Maypán

Established in 2001, Café Mayapán is one of our cornerstone enterprises, providing traditional Mexican cuisine to the public and serving as a job and food employment training center. We have undertaken a unique course of study not found in other Mexican restaurants the food we serve is fresh, based on respect for our heritage, and prepared with respect for ourselves and our customers.

“When preparing menu items, we ask ourselves: What are the foods of our ancestors? What ingredients do those contain? Can any of those ingredients be sourced locally?”- Ana Gomez, Café Mayapán

Lummetik Trading Co.

We believe in the right of people to remain in their communities if they choose, to not be displaced from their lands by forced migration. Our fair-trade import company serves as a point of sell site for goods including textiles, home goods, and toys crafted by indigenous women from cooperatives across Mexico that are members of the national network Niu Matat Napawika, which we also launched to assist the women in small business development and export.

Rayito de Sol Daycare and Learning Center

We believe children naturally see themselves as part of nature and are eager to support their innate curiosity and creativity while preparing them with the social and academic skills they will need to enter kindergarten. Rayito de Sol Daycare and Learning Center is a social-purpose enterprise founded in 2000 by the women of La Mujer Obrera as part of our vision to create meaningful employment for NAFTA-displaced garment workers based on community needs. Participating children are primarily low-income and of Mexican background, and our Spanish-immersion curriculum affirms and develops not only their language skills but also their Mexican cultural heritage.
