About Por Los Niños Zihuatanejo

Despite Mexico's best efforts, many children lack the resources to attend school. Local communities often lack the finances to provide a safe and secure learning environment. School supplies can be a luxury the children and parents cannot afford.The Por Los Niños charity, and our caring partners, have provided more than $6,000,000 pesos to give these deserving children an enhanced opportunity to learn at more than 20 schools.


Sailfest 2015

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is Sailfest! It begins this year February 1, 2015.



Donating to Por Los Niños

Nueva Creation Schools Mexican parents are devoted to the education of their children. In poor communities where many government services are not available, parents build ramshackle classrooms utilizing scrap wood and tarpaper. The dedicated young teachers are usually unpaid volunteers. The government often provides some textbooks. Furniture, learning materials and sanitation are donated by organizations like our Por Los Niños Charity and our partners.

Any assistance you wish to offer is greatly appreciated, whether donating your time, making a monetary contribution, or bringing things when you visit the area. 100% of your donation goes to the foundation. All facilitators are unpaid.

Our U.S. partner, Los Niños, Inc., is a non-profit charitable corporation registered in the State of Oregon. The U.S. Internal Revenue Service has granted Los Niños 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status as a public benefit charity, which will make your contributions tax deductible.

Our Biggest Fundraiser

Our major fundraiser each year is the Zihuatanejo Sailfest. Each year in February, between 40 and 50 sailboats are enthusiastically welcomed by the local community. There are cook offs, and tons of local festivals celebrating this wonderful event.

The State Secretary of Education announced that the Zihua Sailfest is the most successful educational fund raiser in the State of Guerrero. The Municipal Director of Education estimated that more than 2,000 disadvantaged children are attending school because of the cruiser's dedication to Zihua's bright-eyed young scholars.
