Review for Project Amigo, Novato, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We discovered Project Amigo a number of years ago when I took my pre-teen sons to learn what kind of an impact they could make helping others. It is remarkable how the project has, through some simple incentives, encouraged children to enter and then stay in school in this very poor corner of rural Mexico where education had not been part of the culture.
In supporting the education of so many children through grade school, high school and even the University, through incentives, homework clubs, computer labs, medical and dental help and scholarships, Project Amigo is changing the culture in this part of the world.

Role:  Volunteer & We have helped with several of the major incentive programs, a Christmas party and a trip to the beach. I have cut hair at the migrant labor camp and we have played with dozens of children. .
