This is the second time LKHZ has hosted a yoga event on Bryn Mawr’s Campus and the 4th Yoga event ever through LKHZ.
Yoga is an influential aspect of Central American culture, and as we raise awareness for human rights in Central America, we want to embrace positivity and spread the word. Yoga in Central America is not a common association, but through the past twenty years has grown more common and has been adopted for a variety of uses. In addition to yoga bringing in tourism money to provide jobs and resources to local people, yoga has powerful effects in other contexts. Schools, orphanages, and shelters are implementing yoga as an option for students and those facing troubles to relieve troubles, balance energy, and brighten outlooks. Also, free yoga classes are common for Honduran children looking for relief from internal conflicts such as the drug wars. In situations where workers are kept in uncomfortable positions for long periods of time, such as Salvadoran coffee sorters, yoga has been a small step in the fight for better worker’s rights to provide a healthy and positive break from the work. Yoga is an activity in Central America that promotes positivity, peace, and harmony.
Support Little Known Help Zone by visiting us when we table 11:30-3:30 on Thursday in the Campus Center and 5-7 Monday in Erdman selling raffle tickets to win a $25 gift card to Mom’s Organic Market! Tickets are 1/$1, 6/$5, 15/$10. All money will go to human rights causes in Central America.
The event will have healthy snacks, the hour long yoga class, and the raffle drawing!
Event sponsored by BMC SGA.

While in Mexico this past week, LKHZ donated a large bag of books to KKIS, Keeping Kids in School. This organization donates large amounts of school supplies (over 2,000 bags) to students in Mexican schools, as well as a box of supplies for the teachers. These English library books, donated by Salisbury Middle School last year during a trip to El Salvador, will help children practice reading English at school and also serves as a great exposure to younger kids.
Check out KKIS to learn more about their amazing work!

It’s time again for Mayan Children Sponsorships so they can go to school, and Little Known Help Zone has responsored the past sponsored student Julio Cesar to continue for another year of school. This was made possible by generous donations during Bryn Mawr events and through speaking at PETE&C. For $360, Julio will attend school for another year and further his education which would otherwise be impossible.
If you remember, LKHZ has sponsored two students in the past, including Julio Cesar. The other student, Brenda, is graduating this year, but Julio still has a few years in high school to go. LKHZ also donated a bed to Julio’s family in December.
Once Julio finishes school, LKHZ will stop student sponsorships for the moment to create a more comprehensive program that is more inclusive of children in need rather than of specific students.
Looking to buy a gift or treat yourself and support a great cause? Look no further, the Little Known Help Zone Etsy shop is back up and running. There’s crayons, key necklaces, Salvadoran shell rings, tab bracelets, and other fun items perfect to buy.
