Mission Statement

1) ACCESS: To support disadvantaged and marginalized children of west-central Mexico achieve their highest potential through education and by providing material support, enrichment activities, and healthcare services not otherwise available to them. 2) SERVICE: To provide opportunities for volunteers from developed countries to render valuable humanitarian service and befriend disadvantaged children and youth in Mexico. 3) FRIENDSHIP: To create and foster friendship and understanding between children and adults from developed countries and their peers in Colima, Mexico.

Description

Education and literacy are powerful tools to bring about a brighter future for the world’s children who in turn benefit the nations they live in. For three decades, Project Amigo has helped rural children in Mexico continue their formal schooling up to and including college level.

In existence since 1984, and formally as a U.S. 501c3 non-profit since 1996, Project Amigo provides educational scholarships, material support, enrichment activities, and health care to disadvantaged children and youth in Colima state.

Volunteer Work Weeks based at our head-quarters in the beautiful hillside village of Cofradía de Suchitlán allow volunteers from developed countries to engage in humanitarian service and become both friends and sponsors of Mexican children and youth seeking the many advantages of education.
