A movement dedicated to the
simplicities of being.
We gather to
create social emotional experiences
that diversify our sense of belonging
within ourselves and with others.
We provide resources that craft intentional spaces for humans to have access to growth - providing opportunities that meet basic needs while crafting innovative ways to break cycles of extreme low development, fortifying local identity and communities to be able to help themselves.
The MAYSEA Movement is designed to enhance
social transformation with accessible opportunities for those living in marginalized rural communities.
Human Being is a species.

Our story has always been a story of Community.
A story of Time.
A story of Resilience...
The United Nations recognizes education as an effective vehicle for social mobility, yet education is only widely accessible to families with a stable stream of income. Our programs ensure that the current and next generations will have the tools.
Nicaragua, one of the hemisphere's poorest countries, faces low per capita income, widespread underemployment, and a heavy external debt burden.
Distribution is one of the most unequal on the globe.
Community development is a strong backbone for promoting socio-economic growth. With this, we have understood that our investment in working with developing communities is ultimately an investment of many challenges and cultural barriers.
However, the devotion to the land from community members within off-grid communities has sparked a chain reaction. As we spend more time, we uncover and develop practices that equate to the rising of sustainable living measures. We passionately stand by this because humans who possess skills are typically those able to generate income to support their children’s education, food, and healthcare.
And this is something all humans should have access to.
We continue to stay focused on restoring a human pace of growth with anthropological research, symbolic anatomy, emotional immersion, and cultural blueprints.
If our humanity is to have any chance of tackling challenges,
we have to work together to uplift our ability to be.
When we come together, the possibilities for growth are infinite.
Our goal is not to change the world.
Our goal is to gather.
To come together.
To unleash our being.
To learn from each other.
To all develop and grow.
Our goal is the raise the level of empathy with other humans.
We blend social, emotional and community engagement into practices that allow people from all
backgrounds to express their full potential all while building a foundation of opportunity.
Currently, we do this in the rural jungle communities of Nicaragua.
Intentional gathering spaces are at the route of belonging.
It is the physical container for relationships to form and deepen.
There is nothing more genuinely powerful then coming together to share
minimalist belongings and still know that the we belong.
A simple concept: we develop innovative spaces within rural communities to create opportunities
that empower people in rural areas to provide for their families, in their time + space.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to immersing cultures and the providing resources
needed to fuel human potential and community development.
We are a community for communities.
THE GINGER COLLECTIVE |
PROVIDING NATURAL ALTERNATIVES FOR MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES
THE FUTURE OF GINGER IS REGENERATIVE.
The idea is that this will increase their family household income by more than 40% with certified organic ginger seed.
In order to start this farm, we are trying to raise $5,000 for the cost of trainings, natural agro-forestry education, land, tools, and seeds for farmers. After year one, the farmers will be able to harvest 3 bags for every one bag of ginger planted this year which will then be re-harvested for next year for future crops. After spending many moons in the community over the course of 5 years, the goal of this project is to help members of the rural jungle communities living completely off-grid have an opportunity to utilize their land and space to provide for their families. Ginger also serves to have many health benefits that, hopefully, will help enhance natural healing remedies within the community. With a partnership and land donation of Finca Esperanza, we are thankful to make this Ginger Collective happen for smallholder farmers in the Southern rural community in Nicaragua.

HANDMADE RECYCLED PAPER WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN
SCRAPS ARE SACRED & PAPER BRINGS PURPOSE.
What do you do with your paper scraps? Not much, right? Neither did we. Nor the rural community of Cangrejo in the Nicaraguan jungle tucked in their off-grid splendor. What do we all have in common?
We don't like trash. It's ugly, it's smelly, we find ways to get rid of it. It is, however, a substantial part of our lives: we live, we consume, we create waste. And so also the school has its paper waste, quarantine got long, and well - we came up with a simple idea to give scraps a second life. Together with Marcela, professor and community leader, we have started to implement the paper production in April 2020 and besides being able to offer an engaging activity for the kids, it is also a manual work that instills motivation, patience and hope to the community as a whole. The importance of using materials that are known to the locals, to change perspectives, to give new life to trash...well, it does not only make our hearts happy, but also let's the community thrive on new adventures. To many more to come!
Humans all over the world are fighting for change.
Through local partnerships, we build expressive project experiences designed to harness the influence of society and our ability of being human with other humans regardless of culture and background.
We give time through hands-on experiences.
We provide resources for community development projects in the rural communities.
We host social emotional activation projects across borders (i.e. Love Letters to Strangers)
Why? Because unleashing our ability to be might just have a lasting effect on another human.
