What is “Los Ninos de Chapala y Ajijic !”

September 15, 2008

Just what is Los Niños de Chapala y Ajijic, A.C. ? It’s just one of the oldest and best Educational Charities at Lake Chapala…. That’s What !

You will find a lot of charities here at Lake Chapala. There are a lot of reasons why. First, I think that the Ex pats who live here feel very blessed to live in such a beautiful place among such hard working, kind and welcoming native people, many of which have little in the way of worldly possessions comparatively speaking.

The Expatriate community sees the need without the envy. We’re not made to feel like we’re exploiting invaders, but are welcomed as guests and so we respond.

www.ChapalaClub.com wants to do our part to make you, our readers aware of the many opportunities to reach down and give a hand up to those who are so worthy and who truly appreciate any help they receive.

So, we hope to include an article on each of the Lake Chapala – Ajijic charities on these pages.

Now, here’s a short descriptive quote right from the website of “Los Niños de Chapala y Ajijic, A.C.”

“Los Niños de Chapala y Ajijic, A.C. (NCA) has supported the educational and nutritional needs of the Lakesidearea’s underprivileged children for almost forty years. We provide tuition fees, school supplies and uniforms, a monthly supplement and, in some cases, accommodation and transportation assistance.

NCA currently has approximately 275 children and young adults in the program – from kindergarten to university. NCA Alumni include doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants and marine biologists and some just ordinary folks living a better life through having a better education.”

Now, here’s a great video that says it all much better than I can.

If you already live at Lake Chapala or plan a visit stop by the Bazaar !

“El Bazar de Los Niños (The Thrift Shop) is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is located in Riberas del Pilar at  95-B Hidalgo (on the north side of the Carretera, a half-block east of Chicken Little). The cross street is San Mateo.

The Bazar offers donated items such as clothing, household goods, books and more, to the Lakeside Community. We also take consignments! The benefits are twofold – the Mexican and foreign community can purchase items at very low cost and the proceeds help support local Mexican children with educational scholarships.

Director Lori Skoda is the Bazar Coordinator. She can be reached at 765-3147.”
