The Noh-Bec Community


This is a community of 1,200 who live on the NW side of Playa del Carmen.  Their community has been carved out of the jungle in the last 3 years.  They have built classrooms for students on their own, but still lack basic needs like running water and electricity.  They are proud of what they have accomplished and enjoy living far from the parts of society they don’t like.  The KKIS Project would like to help them with school supplies, but they need much more help.
