Hekab Be is a Non-profit Library and Activity Center in Akumal, QROO, Mexico

#GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that takes place on November 30, 2021. It's an opportunity for people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need

Hekab Be's goal is to enter 2022 with half of our Operational Expenses covered by the children's library fundraising efforts on #GivingTuesday.  Hekab Be's expenses cover teachers' salaries, utilities, building maintenance, and basic classroom supplies.  This would allow the children's library the freedom to focus on the children without such a large expense looming over the organization.​

2021 Accomplishments

  • Much-needed renovations. 
  • Added an additional part-time teacher to ensure the students are all getting enough attention and instruction. 
  • New website! 
  • Created a new logo and have renamed ourselves Hekab Be Biblioteca y Centro de Actividades. Hekab Be Library & Activity Center. This better reflects all that we do as we are so much more than a library! 
  • Implemented a consistent social media campaign highlighting Kaori’s daily teaching and experiences with the children as well as educating our followers on upcoming initiatives, fundraisers, volunteering opportunities, etc. 
  • Committed to a renewed focus on consistently communicating with our supporters via periodic e-mail newsletters and other forms of outreach. 
  • Reactivated the Mexican Board and have begun the process of installing new, engaged members. 
  • All of this and more - while still dealing with the devastation of Covid’s impact on the local economy and many local and ex-pat families.
