Welcome

Por Los Niños de Zihuatanejo

We are an all-volunteer educational foundation, created in 2005, dedicated to providing hope and opportunity to the least-advantaged children in our Mexican community. In this website, we will share our educational initiatives, our challenges and our accomplishments. Perhaps they will inspire you to join us, making dreams come true for our bright-eyed young scholars.

We started in 2005 with the idea of helping one community to build a classroom – at this point, we have built 138 classrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and playgrounds, including 14 new schools. Our nutrition program feeds 30,000+ breakfasts and lunches a year to hungry students, and we have helped to provide hundreds of scholarships. In addition, Por los Niños also provided a well to provide water to 2 schools.

During the pandemic we fed on average 1300 meals per week, serving 12 colonias near Primaria Centenario de la Revolución.

Poem – Values

Today will be a day, better than yesterday
I am going to strive, to give the best of me because I can do it, I am capable,
I am intelligent, I am unique, I am loved, I am kind, I am respectful, I am tolerant, I am happy, I am handsome, I am beautiful.
I will control my emotions and I was born with a purpose.
I am no better than anyone and nobody is better than me.

Say I!

About 10 years ago I went with my friends, Carol and Don, to a volunteer meeting for Sailfest...about which I knew nothing. We volunteered for the Raffle Committee and the rest is history. As a retired elementary teacher, I understand the need for a good start for the...
