Through no fault of their own, they don't have enough money to pay the additional fees every child incurs for a "free" public education. These are working families, who struggle to house, clothe and feed each other. There's just not enough left to send some of their kids to school. (Photo credit: Shutterstock)
We can help. The Mexican government pays for the school buildings and teachers' salaries, but that's it.
There's an organization here that can do so much for just a few dollars. Los Ninos de Ajijic y Chapala can sponsor a child for $75 for a whole year of grade school. Even if you donate a dollar or two, that goes a long way down here.
Why not donate a dollar for each child in your family? Or a dollar for as many years education that you've achieved? For me, that would make $25, including graduate school and continuing education courses.
I would never have been able to go to college without the kindness of strangers who gave me and my family money. If you can, use this button to donate through PayPal. I will match your donation.
