Project Amigo, a nonprofit society based in Colima, Mexico, transforms the lives of disadvantaged Mexican children and youth by enabling and supporting their continuing education. It is affiliated with Rotary Clubs throughout North America. Our club has made a commitment to Project Amigo to sponsor two students.
"Research  shows that young people who graduate high school enjoy better outcomes in all areas of their lives--health, relationships and financial well-being and are better able to make choices that positively affect themselves, their families and their communities. Oftentimes the only thing standing in the way of a high school diploma for our young people is the ability to cover the basic costs of transportation, uniforms and school supplies. Your donation will make sure a young person has what he or she needs to be successful in school--bus money, books, school supplies, uniforms, a hot lunch, and weekly support through Project Amigo’s Homework Club.
