Sponsor A Child
KINDERGARTEN TO GRADE 6
Establish a relationship with a disadvantaged Mexican child that can deepen and expand over the years as that child grows into adulthood. As a sponsor, you will receive a photo of the child and annual progress reports. If you visit Project Amigo, we will arrange for you to meet your sponsored child. Sponsorships help pay for the Christmas Fiesta, fund an annual field trip, purchase a new set of clothes and a pair of shoes, and support medical, dental, and educational services provided by Project Amigo volunteers.
Sponsor A Student
GRADE 7 TO GRADE 12
The costs of attending junior high and high school are beyond the means of many rural families. Without sponsorship, schooling for most children served by Project Amigo would end at sixth grade, and they would begin working in menial jobs, locked for life into a world of grinding poverty. Though sponsorships and donations to our Sponsorship Fund, Project Amigo is opening a new future for these children.
Tech School /
Sponsorship recipents who successfully complete high school may be eligible for a Project Amigo University and Technical Sponsorship to attend educational institutions in Colima, Mexico. With your support, Project Amigo graduates have become doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers, and community leaders. When these students enter a profession, they break the cycle of poverty that has imprisoned their family for generations. Your donation to our University and Technical Sponsorship Fund opens horizons of opportunity these students and their parents have only dreamed about.

Each winter Canadian Volunteers come to Project Amigo to work, meet the students, and learn more
about the people and culture of western Mexico. Humanitarian work can include distribution of children’s books to poor rural schools, interacting with junior high and high school sponsorship recipients at their homework clubs, helping prepare for the annual Christmas Fiesta for 300 children, and distributing clothing and basic essentials to families in migrant sugar cane camps, or reading and playing with children in orphanages who need some extra attention.
Let Project Amigo be your partner in international service, offering a reputable, experienced, and deeply significant humanitarian dimension (not to mention tax benefits) to your corporate mission and portfolio.
