FUNDACIÓN AYUDA NIÑOS LA PAZ, A.C. (FANLAP)
a foundation for helping disadvantaged children in La Paz
Most of us were fortunate to have been raised in a country where public education is available to all for twelve years. UNESCO had hoped to effect “Education for all by 2015.” However, something like this does not happen by hoping, but will happen only with the combined efforts of many people.
The children the Fundación works with have been raised in economic poverty, as were their parents, and their grandparents. Many of the parents of our students cannot read. Many more have had no more than a third grade education. These parents are aware that receiving an education is one of the surest means by which their children can change their lives. And you can be a part of this change.
In addition to serving breakfast two days a week to augment the breakfast programs of the Catholic Church in Colonias Marquez de Leon and Vista Hermosa and sponsoring a lunch program in a dining room we constructed, Fundación Ayuda Niños La Paz, A.C., is doing its part by providing financial help to junior and senior high school students to enable them to obtain more than six years of education.
NEW! One student just completed her studies in accounting.
