Why Your Support Matters

The Volcanes colonia is one of the poorest neighborhoods in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. The children here are in need of education and a safe place where they can learn and believe in themselves. Before the Volcanes Kids Education Program, children in this colonia rarely stayed in school past elementary or before graduating middle school. Our program had made an impact in the dropout rates. Almost every student enrolled in our program stays in school through high school, and we currently have 32 students enrolled in university.

The fact that our program has grown from 60 children to almost 400 in recent years shows how big a need for education there is here. Your support helps us to empower a generation by transforming the lives of these children and, by extension, transforming the community.

In April of 2018, The Seaver Foundation sent three of their members, to conduct an extensive evaluation of our program. If you would like to read the full report you can click here: (will open in new window)
