Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Up against the mountains on the eastern edge of the Pacific coast resort city of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, lies the impoverished suburb of Colonia Volcanes. As Primary Schools in poor Mexican neighborhoods don't have English teachers or computers, their students often can't even compete.
So, in 2011, the Volcanes Community Education Project (VCEP), a non-government funded English and computer program, was established to help students in this neighborhood develop key qualifications for future employment opportunities - free of charge.
It was a great hit from day one. Within months, the classrooms were filled with children learning English as well as Computers.
Today, the program suffers from low teacher funding and a lack of operating funds, so Volcanes Project supporters are hosting a party to raise the monies needed.
We recently received a letter from event coordinator, Jim Lee, who invites everyone to join them at Casa Karma Boutique Hotel on Thursday, November 9th, for a very special evening benefiting the Volcanes Community Education Project. It read:
Dear Supporter of the Volcanes Project:
I want to personally invite you to join us on Thursday, November 9th, for a very special evening benefiting the Volcanes Project.
